A number of current and former South African cricketers paid their tributes to Henry Davids, who announced his retirement from the game on Thursday.
Davids called time on a spectacular 21-year career that concluded with tremendous success with the Titans over the past decade.
The batsman posted an announcement on his social channels, which immediately prompted a response by fellow and former teammates and opponents.
‘Absolute Champion,’ wrote Proteas spinner Tabraiz Shamsi in a reply, while Albie Morkel, who played alongside Davids for many years in Pretoria tweeted, ‘Awesome sharing the field with you.’
Absolute Champion!! Bit only gonna miss your skills on the field but the banter in the changeroom even more!!
I’m sure Mandla and Sizwe will be breathing abit easier now 🤣
