South Africa and Sri Lanka head into Newlands on Saturday for the fifth and final One Day International with the series done and dusted as a contest, but it will be a last chance for a few players to put their hands up for a World Cup spot.

'I have been privileged to live out my dream playing a sport I love, and I am forever grateful for the support I have received from my teammates, coaches, family, friends and fans throughout the years'.

Duminy, who is now part of the ODI series being played in his home country against the visiting Sri Lanka team, will get a final chance to walk out to Newlands, his home ground, when the two teams lock horns in the 5th ODI of the bilateral series on Saturday.

Duminy, who was released by the Mumbai Indians ahead of the 2019 IPL Auction, however, will be available for the T20 squad for South Africa.

Duminy, who announced his retirement from Test and first-class cricket in 2017 to put more focus on his white-ball cricket, feels "the time is right" to close this chapter of his worldwide career.

The South African has played in 193 ODIs so far and scored 5047 runs at an average of 37.39. The off-spinner also has 68 wickets to his name.

In September 2016, he registered his best bowling figures in the 50-over format when he took 4 for 16 in a one-off game against Ireland in Benoni.

Duminy joins stalwarts like Chris Gayle and Imran Tahir in announcing that the World Cup will be their swansong.
