Theunis de Bruyn the South Africa batter retires from international cricket
“I’ve been fortunate to represent my country at the highest level of cricket and that’s been the proudest moment of my career,” de Bruyn wrote in a statement released by his domestic team the Titans. “I’ve lived a childhood dream, shared dressing rooms with my heroes and played cricket at some of the world’s most iconic venues; and I can’t say thank you enough for the opportunities I’ve got through this game.
“Looking back at everything that I’ve achieved, it is time I say goodbye to international cricket and focus on the next chapter. I’m excited for what the future has to offer and looking forward to chasing more dreams and ambitions in life.”
De Bruyn was a part of the Pretoria Capitals team that reached the final of the inaugural SA20 competition. With 238 runs, he finished as the team’s joint-second highest run-scorer in the tournament, behind Will Jacks and level with Phil Salt.
