Former West Indies skipper Denesh Ramdin announces retirement from international cricket
On Monday, former West Indies captain Denesh Ramdin announced his immediate retirement from international cricket.
In a T20I in December 2019, Ramdin competed in his final game for the West Indies. He will still play franchise cricket, though.
“It is with great pleasure that I announce my retirement from international cricket. 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,” wrote Ramdin on his Instagram.
“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,” he stated further.

Despite playing for Guyana Amazon Warriors, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, and Trinbago Knight Riders from 2013 to 2021, the wicketkeeper-batter has been unable to find a team for the upcoming CPL season.
He participated in 139 ODIs, 71 T20Is, and 74 Test matches. In July 2005, he made his Test cricket debut in Colombo against Sri Lanka.
He contributed to the 2012 and 2016 West Indies T20 World Cup victories.
Ramdin served as West Indies’ Test captain from 2014 until his replacement, Daren Sammy, who had retired from the format, in 17 games, including 13 Tests, three T20Is, and an ODI. In 2015, Jason Holder took over as the leader.
