Its funny that he should quit something he hasn't been doing for over a year.I think its just a question of making it official.Anyway good luck to him he served the Proteas well.

Wait for the book.... we will hear how he got away from being in prison for rape !!!!
Makhaya - thanks for all the epic wickets.
We'll miss you.

Was a great player.
His decision brings down the curtain on a brilliant career that has seen him take 390 wickets (the 11th highest of all time and the second best by a Protea) in Test cricket in 101 appearances and 266 wickets in ODI cricket in 173 appearances.
He holds the South African records for the best bowling figures in Test cricket (a match return of 13/132 versus the West Indies at Trinidad in 2005), in ODI cricket (6/23 against Australia at Sahara Park Newlands in 2006) and of the most 10-wicket hauls in Tests (4, a mark he shares with Dale Steyn). He is also the only South African bowler to take 10 wickets in a Test match at the Mecca of Cricket, the famous Lord’s ground in London.
Sad that he didn't go out on his own terms.

Epic loss to SA cricket. I can only hope that he will do work on developing more players of his caliber, we have the talent, we dont have means of finding it... Maybe he can start a goat herding cricket league :D
