BRASBANE – South African captain Faf du Plessis said on Friday that the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia will be his last in two years.
The 34-year-old, who led his country in two World T20 campaigns in 2014 and 2016, wanted to play the third, but then go aside.
"The T20 World Cup in 2020 is something I'm really looking forward to, and I think that's probably the final task for me," he said in front of a one-time T20 against Australia on Saturday.
Du Plessis, who is a skipper in all three formats, made his T20 debut in 2012 and played 41 times, and scored 1,237 races on average of 35.34.
The World Cup 2020 is held from 18 to 15 November in eight Australian cities.
