South Africa’s women’s batter Mignon du Preez, on Friday, December 9, called it a day from all forms of international cricket. Back in April, 2022, the 33-year-old cricketer retired from Tests and ODI cricket after playing in the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand.

It brought to an end du Preez’s career, which lasted for nearly 16 years. However, the Protoria-born batter will continue to take part in foreign T20 leagues around the world.

"Fifteen years of international cricket, WOW, what a blessing it has been. It's never an easy decision to step away from something you

love as much as I love cricket, but I know in my heart that the time is right for me to announce my retirement from all forms of international cricket,” du Preez was quoted as saying in a statement.

"However, I will still continue to play the shorter format of the game in the global leagues until such a time that I am blessed to become a mom and start a family of my own," she added.

Du Preez played one Test, 154 ODIs and 114 T20Is, where she scored 5684 runs with three centuries. Her top score of 116 not out came against Ireland in an ODI back in August 2016 in Dublin.
