South Africa defeated the mighty Australia in the last league match of the Cricket World Cup on Saturday. The Proteas ended their World Cup campaign on a high and a fitting tribute to two of their retiring stalwarts. JP Duminy and spinner Imran Tahir ended their One-day International careers at Old Trafford on Saturday. In their last ODI appearance, Tahir took scalp of Australia captain Aaron Finch, while all-rounder Duminy contributed with 14 runs in South Africa’s famous win in Manchester.
Addressing media at Old Trafford, though, Duminy revealed that he had settled on the decision to completely stop all international cricket in the build-up to the Australia game. “I’ve been considering it for the last couple of months and I’ve made the decision that this will be the last,” he said. “I went into the game with the guys knowing that this would be my last one.
