Denesh Ramdin, a former captain of the West Indies and wicketkeeper-batter, has declared his retirement from international cricket. He will still play for a franchise, though.

However, as of the upcoming CPL season, he is not affiliated with any organisation. Between 2013 and 2021, Ramdin represented the Trinbago Knight Riders, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, and Guyana Amazon Warriors. In 2017 and 2018, he also played for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

With 74 Tests, 139 ODIs, and 71 T20Is under his belt, Ramdin has amassed four Test hundreds and two ODI hundreds. Before Jason Holder took over as team leader in 2015, he previously led his group in a variety of formats.

“It is with great pleasure that I announce my retirement from international cricket,” Ramdin wrote on Instagram. “The past 14 years have been a dream come true. I fulfilled my childhood dreams by playing cricket for Trinidad and Tobago and the West Indies. My career afforded me the opportunity to see the world, make friends from different cultures and still be able to appreciate where I came from.

“Even though I am announcing my retirement from international cricket, I am not retiring from professional cricket. I will still be playing franchise cricket around the world…” Ramdin added.

Ramdin last competed in an international game in Hyderabad in a T20I against India in December 2019. In January 2016, his Test career effectively came to an end. It followed a disappointing tour of Australia in which the visitors lost 2-0.

“I take this opportunity to thank everyone who made an impact on my 14-year career, particularly my family, my beautiful wife Janelle, and our kids for all the sacrifices you had to make for me to be away for long periods of time during my international career,” Ramdin concluded.
