ST JOHN'S: Experienced wicketkeeper/batsman Shane Dowrich has announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect and has withdrawn from the West Indies squad for the upcoming One-Day International (ODI) series against England. Dowrich's decision to quit was announced by Cricket West Indies (CWI) in a release on Thursday. Dowrich made his international debut against Australia in Dominica in 2015. He played 35 Tests where he scored 1,570 runs including three centuries with a top score of 125 not out against Sri Lanka in Trinidad in 2018. Behind the stumps, he had 85 catches and five stumpings. He also played one ODI in Ireland in May 2019, the release said.
CWI thanked Dowrich for his contribution to West Indies cricket and wished him the best in his future endeavours.
“We want to thank Shane for contribution when he played for West Indies. He is a disciplined, hard-working cricketer who always gave his utmost in front and behind the stumps. He had a memorable series in 2019 when he made an outstanding Test century on home soil in Barbados to help us beat England and win the Wisden Trophy," Miles Bascombe, CWI’s Director of Cricket said.
