Former Proteas batsman Henry Davids has called time on his professional career that started all the way back in 2000 at Boland.
Davids was known for his explosive batting at the top of the order and he achieved tremendous success in South Africa’s domestic game.
The right-hander was a star for the Cape Cobras in all the local competitions, winning the One-Day Cup with the franchise in 2007 as well as the T20 Challenge in 2009.
Davids then moved to Pretoria, where has been playing for the Titans since the end of the 2009 season. He was also made captain of the first-class team for the start of the 2012-13 season.
In 2012, Davids made his Proteas debut in a T20I clash with New Zealand. He made respective scores of 55 and 68 in the following two T20Is against the Black Caps. He would go on to play only six more T20Is for South Africa, while he made two ODI appearances against Pakistan in 2013.
In a Twitter post, Davids, making his announcement, thanked each and every team and union for the role they played throughout his career.
‘After 21 years of professional cricket, it’s time to call it a day. To where it all started, Boland to Cobras to Titans to Proteas but specifically Titans Cricket. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to live my dream and reach the highest of highs but most importantly to help me grow into the person I am today,’ Davids said.
