South Africa captain Faf du Plessis on Friday flagged the 2020 ICC World T20 in Australia as his conceivable swansong from T20 internationals.

“The T20 World Cup is in Australia and that is not very far away, so ideally we’ll be back for that and that will presumably be my last worldwide visit I would think,” du Plessis was cited as saying by Cricket Australia.

du Plessis felt that the overdose of residential T20 associations have made it hard to pit the best national groups in arrangement other than the World T20, which he felt must be taken a gander at by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

“What’s more, I can see the equivalent with different groups – it’s never their most grounded groups, and fans come to watch the best players play. That is the place I see the diversion pushing ahead, yet the T20 World Cup in 2020 is something I’m extremely anticipating – that will likely be the last competition for me,” he said.

Subsequent to wrapping up their ODI installations with a 2-1 decision for the vacationers, du Plessis’ side will confront the Aussies in an irregular T20I on the Gold Coast on Saturday.
