Trisha Chetty announces retirement from professional cricket

Trisha Chetty, a South African wicketkeeper-batter, has announced her retirement from professional cricket. A recurring back problem forced the decision, bringing an end to a 21-year career in domestic and international cricket. This 34-year-old player has played 134 ODIs, 82 T20Is, and 2 Tests, totalling nearly 4000 runs on the international cricket field. Chetty finished her career as the wicketkeeper with the most dismissals in women’s one-day internationals (184), and she also had 70 dismissals in T20Is, reports Live Cricket Score.

“I still remember the incredible feeling I had when I first walked over the boundary rope in green and gold in 2007. It has been my dream to represent my country by playing for the Proteas for the past 16 years, and that feeling will never leave me. Each time I put on my jersey, I felt utmost honour, ” Chetty said in a statement released by CSA on Friday (March 17).

“But, after recovering from back-to-back ‘back injuries’ for the past five years, I’ve decided to hang up my mantle and let the gloves gather dust. I’ve tried everything to stay in the game and pushed as much as I could, but my body is telling me it has nothing more to give and it’s time to retire from all forms of cricket.”
