South Africa captain Graeme Smith has announced he will retire from international cricket after the third Test against Australia.

The current match at Newlands is the 33-year-old's 347th for South Africa, including 117 Tests, while his 109 matches as a Test captain is a record.

Entering the third and final match against Australia at his home ground, the left-hander had scored 9,257 Test runs at an average of 48.72, behind only the 13,289 of Jacques Kallis on the list of South Africa's all-time leading runscorers.

On the world list, only India's Sunil Gavaskar has scored more runs as an opener.
