The West Indies women’s cricket team all-rounder Deandra Dottin has announced her retirement from international cricket with immediate effect on Monday, August 1. The shocking news comes just hours after Barbados’ nine-wicket defeat at the hands of the reigning T20 world champions Australia in Group A fixture of the Commonwealth Games 2022.

Dottin had posted a retirement note on her official Twitter handle to confirm the news stating that the reason behind her bringing curtains down on her illustrious cricketing career is because she is no longer able to adhere to team culture and team environment as it has undermined her ability to perform excellently.

Since Deandra Dottin has retired from international cricket it means that she would not be available for Barbados’ final CWG 2022 group fixture against India Women on Wednesday, August 3. The senior all-rounder who had made her debut for the Windies way back in 2008 has so far played 146 One Day Internationals and 126 T20Is.
