Chetty calls time on his cricket career
Durban – One of KwaZulu-Natal Cricket and the Hollywoodbets Dolphins
most loved sons Cody Chetty has called time on his cricketing career as
he and his fiancé pursue interests beyond the borders of South Africa.
A KwaZulu-Natal man through and through, Chetty was educated at Glenwood
High School before moving to the Dolphins Academy where he continued to
flourish as a cricketer following a first-class debut at 17 years old.
He formed part of the SA Under 19 side that went to the World Cup in New
Zealand, has been part of the SA Academy and represented the SA A team
through his professional career that has spanned over a decade.
“I want to thank everyone at the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union for the
past eleven years,” Chetty said.
“It is with a heavy heart and a lump in my throat that I say goodbye to
the Union and franchise that I grew up watching and loving as a kid.
“I can’t thank the players and staff at KZN Cricket enough for
everything that you have done for me and the memories that we have
created, I’ll cherish them forever.”
Chetty formed an important part in the Hollywoodbets Dolphins dressing
room over the years and was part of a memorable side that won the RAM
Slam T20 Tournament in 2013/14 and then most recently the squad that won
the Momentum One Day Cup.
In an age of professionalism, having a player that has committed their
whole career to one union can be rare and Chetty’s decision to move on
from cricket will leave a hole at the union.
“We want to thank Cody for his years of service and dedication to
cricket in KwaZulu-Natal,” CEO of KZN Cricket Heinrich Strydom said.
“For a player to spend their entire career at one union is an incredible
example of loyalty and that is something that everyone appreciates about
“A fine cricketer and an even better person off the field we wish Cody
and his fiancé all the very best on their new adventure.”
