South Africa fast bowler Shabnim Ismail announces retirement from international cricket.

South Africa fast bowler Shabnim Ismail has announced her retirement from international cricket at the age of 34.

Ismail, who has taken 317 wickets in 241 games across all three formats of the game, said she had made the "difficult decision" to "move on to the next chapter of my life".

She joins Lizelle Lee and Dane van Niekerk in retiring from the South Africa fold in the last 12 months.

Ismail, who is set to play for Welsh Fire in The Hundred this summer, said she is looking forward to "continuing to perform at the highest level over the next few years".

The right-armer, who is one of the fastest in the women's game, took three wickets in one Test, 191 scalps in 127 one-day internationals and 123 victims in 113 T20s.
