Denesh Ramdin has announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect

Denesh Ramdin, the former West Indies captain, announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket on Monday, July 18, with immediate effect. The Trinidadian wicketkeeper-batter, who has been a member of the Caribbean side since 2005 and owns numerous records while representing his country, will continue to compete in franchise-based events.

Ramdin hasn’t appeared in an international match since December of 2019. He last played for the side in a Twenty20 International series against India in Hyderabad. Ramdin amassed 5,734 international runs in 74 Tests, 139 ODIs, and 71 T20Is.

Ramdin has not been able to find a team for the forthcoming Caribbean Premier League season despite having played for the Trinbago Knight Riders, St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots, and Guyana Amazon Warriors from 2013 to 2021. Ramdin made his Test debut against Sri Lanka in Colombo in July 2005, and his ODI debut against India in Dambulla the following month.

He helped West Indies win the T20 World Cup in 2012 and 2016, but he only had one chance to bat in the first seven games in the 2012 World Cup. However, he was effective with the gloves behind the stumps, with six dismissals. He recently confirmed his participation in Legends League Cricket’s second season.
