Durban: South African cricketer Dean Elgar has announced his retirement from international cricket. He has said that the two-Test series with India will be the last series he will participate in.
The Indian cricket team is playing on tour in South Africa. Both the teams will play a two-match Test series starting on the 26th after the T20 and ODI series are over. The first match will be held in Centurion and the second in Cape Town. Elgar, the former captain of the South African Test cricket team, has announced his retirement.
He has played 84 Tests and 8 ODIs for the South African team in international cricket. He has scored 5000+ runs in Test cricket in his 12-year international cricket career. His Test cricket average is 37.28. He made his debut in 2012.
“My dream is to play cricket. It is also great to play for the country at the international level. And to be able to do this for 12 years is tremendous. I was lucky to have this trip. All good things come to an end. I hereby announce that the series with the Indian team will be my last international series. I am about to play for the last time in my favorite city in the world, Cape Town. “I scored my first Test century on this ground,” he said.
