South Africa's skipper Faf du Plessis on Friday has indicated his retirement plans. The Proteas player revealed that within the span period of two years i.e. after 2020 ICC World T20 in Australia, he will take a call on his T20I career.

Speaking to media, Faf du Plessis said, "The T20 World Cup is in Australia and that's not too far away, so hopefully we'll be back for that and that will probably be my last international tour I would think."

The Proteas captain felt that the overdose of domestic T20 leagues have made it difficult to pit the best national teams in series other than the World T20, which he felt must be looked at by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

"From our perspective, T20 cricket for us over the last two or three years has been a case of bringing in the young guys, giving them an opportunity, so we never really play our strongest XI, which isn't great for the international game," he said.

"Football (has) a situation where it's playing for your clubs and then there's an international tournament. In my opinion, that's a good place for T20 cricket to be in, because you shouldn't be trying to compete with the leagues because they are so strong at the moment."

Further du Plessis also added, "And I can see the same with other teams -- it's almost never their strongest teams, and fans come to watch the best players play. That's where I see the game moving forward, but the T20 World Cup in 2020 is something I'm really looking forward to -- that will probably be the last tournament for me."

After wrapping up their ODI fixtures with a 2-1 verdict in favour of the proteas, du Plessis' side will face the Aussies in an one-off T20I on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

From our point of view, T20 cricket for us in the course of the last a few years has been an instance of getting the youthful folks, giving them a chance, so we never truly play our most grounded XI, which isn't extraordinary for the universal amusement," he said.

Faf has been a great captain for the national cricket side of south africa. I remember his 2012 super 6 match against India, they lost that match but at the beginning how the Indian bowling attack took early wickets, it was Faf who took control on from there on and made it possible for his side to even win.assignment writing service. I agree with his comments regarding t20 cricket being over played now a days. Too much leagues cricket going on around the world one after the another and that way one can't get a break from cricket. At the end faf call it off to get away from all this hassle at 36 years of age, he will be missed greatly.
