AUCKLAND, Aug 31: New Zealand all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme on Wednesday announced his retirement from international cricket with reports suggesting the 36-year-old had taken the decision after being the surprise pick in Australia's Big Bash League (BBL) Draft held recently.
De Grandhomme, a veteran of 29 Tests, 45 ODIs and 41 T20Is, was selected by the Adelaide Strikers ahead of the BBL-12 season to be part of their squad for the Australian domestic T20 tournament.
De Grandhomme was a member of the New Zealand side that won the 2021 World Test Championship final against India, and played a key role in the side's 2019 Cricket World Cup campaign, reaching the final at Lord's, finally losing to England in a dramatic game. IANS
