2020 WT20 to be Du Plessis' last in T20I format

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia in 2020 will be his last.

The 34-year-old, announced his swansong date talking to the media ahead of their lone T20I against Australia in Carrara.

Du Plessis, who has led his country in previous two World T20 campaigns, in 2014 and 2016, is keen to play a third but will then step aside.

"The T20 World Cup in 2020 is something I'm really looking forward to. I think right now that will probably be the last tournament for me," he said in Brisbane.

Du Plessis, who is skipper across all three formats for the Proteas, made his T20 debut in 2012 and has played 41 times, scoring 1,237 runs at an average of 35.34.

The 2020 World Cup takes place between October 18 and November 15 across eight Australian cities.
