New Zealand all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme announced his retirement from international cricket on Wednesday. He took the decision, considering his perpetual "injuries."


"I accept I'm not getting any younger and that the training is getting harder, particularly with the injuries," de Grandhomme said in a release by New Zealand Cricket (NZC).


De Grandhomme made his international debut in 2012. He took a total of 91 wickets across formats. He scored 1,432, 742, and 505 runs in Test, ODI, and T20I cricket, respectively.


De Grandhomme was born in Harare in 1986. He made his First-Class and List A debuts in Zimbabwe. He also represented Zimbabwe in the 2003/04 Under-19 World Cup.


De Grandhomme was an integral member of the New Zealand side that defeated India in the 2021 World Test Championship final in Southampton.


De Grandhomme will continue to play domestic cricket in New Zealand. It was reported that Adelaide Strikers has drafted de Grandhomme for the upcoming BBL season.


NZ’s Trent Boult took a similar route earlier this month. The NZ cricket board agreed to release the left-arm seamer from the central contract list after he requested the same.
