T20 World Cup 2022: A day after the Netherlands’ historic victory over the South African cricket team in the T20 World Cup 2022, Stephan Myburgh announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket.
Fans should be aware that Myburgh was born in South Africa but chose to play for the Netherlands’ cricket team internationally despite being from that country. Myburgh is well recognized for his spectacular batting displays in the T20 World Cup in 2014.
His top-notch beginnings allowed the Netherlands to advance to the Super 10 stage of that major competition. They also defeated England throughout the competition, and they nearly defeated the South African cricket team as well.
Myburgh played 45 T20I games and 22 ODI games for the Netherlands cricket team throughout his international cricketing career. The Indian Premier League never saw him on the field.
Myburgh had a total of 915 runs in T20I cricket, with a 71* as his highest mark. In T20I cricket, he had a strike rate of about 115. In ODIs, he hit four fifty-pluses and five half-centuries. Myburgh, however, was unable to reach the century mark in any type of international cricket.

When he got 37 runs in a critical game against the South African cricket team yesterday, Stephan Myburgh appeared to be in great shape. He scored six runs against Pakistan and eight runs against Zimbabwe.
Putting the boots up. The honour belongs to God! I consider myself fortunate to have made both my first-class and international debuts in 17 and 12 seasons, respectively. Myburgh posted on Instagram.
“Never in my wildest fantasies would I have envisaged ending my World Cup career with a win against @cricket south Africa my blood will always be green. Myburgh claims that the reason for his choice is to spend more time with his family. He’ll keep playing club cricket, I’m sure.
