Former South Africa spinner Paul Harris will retire from all cricket at the end of the 2013 season.

Harris, 34, will end a 14-year first-class career that included 103 wickets from 37 tests for the Proteas with his slow left-arm bowling.

Harris was part of the South African team that won test series in England and Australia in 2008 and played the last of his tests against India in 2011 before losing his place to legspinner Imran Tahir.

Harris also played for Western Province and Warwickshire in England and will finish with current team, the Pretoria-based Titans. Harris told Titans teammates at a team meeting on Tuesday that he was retiring.
