"While a decision like this is never easy, I also feel that it is the right time for me to pass on the baton".

South Africa and Sri Lanka head into Newlands on Saturday for the fifth and final One Day International with the series done and dusted as a contest, but it will be a last chance for a few players to put their hands up for a World Cup spot.

"I have been privileged to live out my dream playing a sport I love, and I am forever grateful for the support I have received from my teammates, coaches, family, friends, and fans throughout the years", it further said.

JP Duminy has announced that the fifth ODI against Sri Lanka at Newlands will be his last home ODI game.

Duminy will retire from the 50-over format after the ICC Cricket World Cup in the United Kingdom later this year, but will continue to be available for the Proteas in T20 global (T20I) cricket.

He was selected for the final two matches of the series, having just made his return to contention after a lengthy lay-off forced by a shoulder injury.

Duminy, who was released by the Mumbai Indians ahead of the 2019 IPL Auction, however, will be available for the T20 squad for South Africa.

The classy left-hander has turned out in 193 ODIs for South Africa, amassing 5047 runs at an average of 37.39 and 68 wickets at an average of 45.08.

Recently, South African spin ace Imran Tahir had also announced that he will retire from the 50-over format after the ICC World Cup.
