For that to happen, he would have to obtain British citizenship a process that could take over five years but he s content with his decision. <p></p> <p></p>"For me, it was just the best decision to make. For me and my family, relocating is the best decision for our future," Olivier was quoted as saying by <em>Daily Mail</em> on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>"I realise some people will understand and some people won't at all, but it doesn't really faze me what they think. At the end of the day, it's about what I want to do. I want to see things going forward and I feel like my cricket will improve playing county cricket."

Every person needs security, he said. <p></p> <p></p>"I accept that my Test career is over for South Africa but if I do well, hopefully in the future, I can play for England," he added. <p></p> <p></p>"I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and if you just concentrate on doing well that will take care of itself. I don't think too far ahead. <p></p> <p></p>"Yes, it will be a goal to play for England one day and it would be amazing but for now my pure focus is on Yorkshire and just doing well for them."
