Deandra Dottin Announces Shocking Retirement From International Cricket: West Indies all-rounder Deandra Dottin has retired from International Cricket after being defeated against Australia at Edgbaston in Birmingham.
She had an off-day in the business, conceding 25 runs in the one over she bowled, after scoring a 22-ball eight.
She posted in Twitter, “There have been many obstacles during my cricket career that I have had to overcome, however, the current climate and team environment has been non-conductive (conducive) to my ability to thrive and reignite my passion.
She added, “With much sadness but without regret, I realize I am no longer able to adhere to team culture and team environment as it has undermined my ability to perform excellently,”.
It remains unclear if Dottin will be available for Barbados’s last match of the CWG group stage, against India, which will be a must-win encounter for both teams to qualify.
Barbados are currently third in the points table with one win and loss each. They won against Pakistan before going down against Australia.
In a career plagued with injuries, her bowling was often restricted, yet she returned 72 and 62 wickets in ODIs and T20Is respectively. As a batter, she amassed 3727 and 2697 runs respectively.
The 31-year-old, who has played 146 ODIs and 126 T20Is, since making her debut in 2008, was one of the most destructive players at her best – with both bat and ball – in the women’s game.
