“I am so grateful for the opportunities and experiences I have had,” she said. “As any athlete knows, training and competing at your best requires much sacrifice and dedication. I now find myself wanting to spend more time with my family, particularly my siblings, and parents.”

“I have loved being able to compete at the highest level and I am so proud of being able to be part of a wonderful group of players who have led the way for women in cricket. The memories I have will stay with me forever.”

“As I step into this new stage of my life, I am excited to explore new opportunities and spend more time with those I love. However, cricket will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will continue to be a proud ambassador for the sport in South Africa.”
