South Africa-born Netherlands batter Stephan Myburgh on Monday announced his retirement from international cricket after the Dutch side ended Proteas' T20 World Cup campaign.

Netherlands secured a direct qualification for the 2024 T20 World Cup after defeating South Africa by 13 runs in their final group match. The Proteas' lose gave a ray of hope to Pakistan and Bangladesh to make it to the last four and Pakistan sealed the semi-final berth with a five-wicket win over their Asian counterparts.

Stephan Myburgh scored 37 runs in his final match for Netherlands at the Adelaide Oval on November 6.

"Hanging up the boots... To God be the

glory!!! Blessed to have made my first class debut 17 seasons ago and international debut 12 seasons ago," Myburgh said in an Instagram post.

"Never in my dreams would I have imagined finishing my career at the World Cup with a win against @cricket_south_africa_ my blood will always be green. As much as a sportsman always want to win I had a tear for my beloved country.

"I am thankful for @kncbcricket and the Netherlands that’s now my home and have too many people to thank for my career. Jesus, @tineke.myburgh, friends and family, sponsors and all the supporters out there I can only say thanks!!! #GodIsGood #Blessed can’t wait to see my girls," Myburgh added.
