New Delhi: Dutch-South Africa cricketer Stephan Myburgh has announced retirement from the international cricket after Netherlands marked one of their best victory ever.
Netherlands defeated South Africa in Sunday by 13 runs to pull-off a miracle in the T20 World Cup 2022. No one had imagines that the Proteas will be stopped from going into semi-finals but Netherlands had other plans.
Netherlands kicked out of tournament, though, they also didn’t make it to the semi-finals. But Netherlands could’t be happier to have achieved this feat in their carrer.
