New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori has announced his retirement from international cricket.

The 36-year-old has called time on a career with the Black Caps that has included 113 Test matches, 295 one-day internationals and 34 T20Is.

His last appearance for his country came in Sunday’s World Cup final against Australia in Melbourne, where New Zealand suffered a seven-wicket defeat.

He told reporters at Auckland airport: “It was my last game for New Zealand, in the final, so it was a lovely way to finish.

“It would have been great to win, but I’m pretty proud of everyone, the way we’ve gone about things the last six weeks.”
