Cape Town - Former Proteas star Rilee Rossouw has donated his match shirt from this past weekend's Royal London One Day Cup final to the Lord's Home of Cricket museum.

Rossouw was simply sublime on the day, smashing 125 off 114 balls to help Hampshire to a 61-run victory over Kent. 

It was Hampsire's first title in six years. 

The official Lord's Twitter page posted a picture of the 28-year-old holding up his match shirt with an autograph under his name and number. 

Rossouw has donated the shirt to the museum and it will now be displayed alongside some of the game's most prized memorabilia. 

Rossouw left South Africa in January 2017 when he accepted a Kolpak deal at Hampshire alongside former Proteas seamer Kyle Abbott. 

He played 36 ODIs and 15 T20Is for the Proteas.
