Sarah Andrews announces her retirement
Sarah Andrews, the Australian fast bowler, has announced her retirement from all forms of cricket. Andrews, 28, has departed after a career of three Tests, 39 one-day internationals and 16 Twenty20 internationals.
Andrews was a member of the squad that recently returned from New Zealand with the Rose Bowl trophy and she was part of Australia's 2008-09 World Cup group. She has also been a key player for the New South Wales Brakers during a dominant era for the team.
"I've been playing representative cricket for the last 10 years and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been a big part of my life so this was always going to be a very tough decision," Andrews said. "I am going to miss it a lot, especially my team mates and all the characters within the game. I've have a lot of fond memories of cricket and it's been great to be part of so many successful teams."
Andrews leaves the game with 54 one-day international wickets at 21.14, placing her equal ninth on Australia's all-time list. She also claimed four Test wickets at 33.75 and 10 Twenty20 victims at 36.80.
