BRISBANE – South African captain Faf du Plessis said on Friday the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia in two years' time will be his last.
The 34-year-old, who has led his country in two World T20 campaigns, in 2014 and 2016, is keen to play a third but will then step aside.
"The T20 World Cup in 2020 is something I'm really looking forward to. I think right now that will probably be the last tournament for me," he said in Brisbane ahead of a one-off T20 against Australia on Saturday.
Thanks for all the kind congrats messages tweeps. Yesterday was a great day. Never easy winning a series in Australia. Saved our best for the last one 💪🏼🇿🇦 pic.twitter.com/jroemzRO9o— Faf Du Plessis (@faf1307) November 12, 2018
