Srinagar: In a major surprising and shocking news, the hard hitting South Africa cricketer Heinrich Klaasen has announced surprise retirement from Test Cricket.

The ‘keeper-batter scored 104 runs at an average of 13 from his four games. His highest score was 35 against Australia in Sydney.

“After a few sleepless nights wondering if I am making the right decision, I have decided to retire from red-ball cricket,” Klaasen said in a statement.

“It’s a difficult decision that I have made because it is by far my favourite format of the game. The battles that I faced on and off the field have made me the cricketer I am today.

“It has been a great journey and I am glad I could have represented my country. My baggy Test cap is the most precious cap I have ever been handed.”
