Hazell retires from international cricket

England news

England off-spinner Dani Hazell has announced her retirement from international cricket.

Hazell, an ICC Cricket World Cup winner in 2017 and a member of England's victorious World T20 squad in 2009, is set to hang up her boots for England after a decade in the international game. 

Still only 30, Hazell took 146 wickets for England including six in their World Cup winning campaign. 

Speaking on her retirement, Hazell said: “I feel 100 per cent happy with my decision to move on from playing international cricket and I’m really excited to find out what the next chapter holds in store for me. I owe a lot to the game and I would now love to give some of my time and energy back into the sport.

WICKET: Danielle Hazell halts Chloe Tryon's madness

“There have been some amazing highlights – some really special moments – but the memory that stands out the most to me is the back-to-back Ashes victories across 2013 and 2014. Playing international cricket for nine years can have an effect on you both mentally and physically and my body is telling me that it’s time to move on.

“I’ll miss the girls, I’ll miss pulling on the England shirt and I’ll miss being in the arena but the timing is right for me," said Hazell, who also captained England in Heather Knight's absence in 2016.

England's coach, Mark Robinson, praised Hazell on a superb international career. He said: “Dani can justifiably be really proud of her international career. She has been one of the best off-spinners in the world but it won't only be her cricketing ability that we’ll miss.

“We’ll miss her leadership qualities and her character. She has mentored the likes of Sophie Ecclestone on and off the pitch, been a good ally for Heather and been a more than capable deputy when needed.

“We all wish her all the best as she enters the next chapter of her life.”
