She had a significant impact on the elimination of India from the recent Women’s World Cup.

She made the decision to focus on T20 cricket and spend time with her loved ones.

With immediate effect, South African batswoman Mignon du Preez has announced her retirement from one-day international and test cricket after a successful run in the 2017 Women’s World Cup.

Mignon du Preez, the star batswoman for South Africa at the last Women’s World Cup, has announced her retirement from one-day international and test cricket, effective immediately. It was decided by the former South African captain to focus on T20 cricket and spend more time with his wife and children. For the past four ICC ODI World Cups, I’ve been incredibly fortunate.” As a result, these experiences rank at the top of my list of greatest joys. However, she stated in a CSA statement, “I would love to prioritize time with my family and possibly establish a family of my own soon.”

“I believe the time has come for me to declare my retirement from the longer format of the game and focus my efforts on T20 cricket moving forward. Thus, after our recent World Cup in New Zealand, I chose to retire from one day of international cricket.

South African women’s cricket is in a good place and now is the proper moment to move aside and let the next generation of exciting players grow this wonderful game of ours. South Africa’s Proteas Women’s path from being a fledgling squad to a world-class one-day team will always be associated with Du Preez, who is diminutive in stature but bursting with cricketing passion.

The 32-year-old made her international debut in 2007 as a teenager and went on to play in 154 one-day internationals, including a record-breaking 46 as captain of the team, which became a fully-contracted outfit during her time in that role.

With 3,760 runs at an average of 32.98 and 18 half-centuries and two centuries, including a 116 not out against Ireland in 2016, the right-handed batsman closes her 50-over career as South Africa’s top run-scorer.

In this year’s World Cup, Du Preez made her 150th appearance against New Zealand and hit her final fifty in one-day international cricket in a historic run chase against India in Christchurch.

Although South Africa will play England in a one-off red-ball match in June, Du Preez will not be adding to her lone Test cap for the time being. When she made her first century in a Test match against India in 2014, the Pretoria-bred and raised batswoman was part of South Africa’s final Test team.
