PRETORIA (AFP) - Former South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis announced that he is bidding farewell to Test cricket with immediate effect.

Du Plessis, 36, said in a statement on his Instagram account that he would continue to be available for one-day and T20Is.

“The next two years are ICC T20 World Cup years. Because of this, my focus is shifting to this format and I want to play as much of it as possible around the world so that I can be the best player I can possibly be,” he said.

Du Plessis captained South Africa in 36 of his 69 Test matches, winning 18 and losing 15.
