Price calls it a day

Zimbabwe spinner Ray Price has retired from international cricket at the age of 37.

A left-armer boasting admirable control and a fierce competitive edge, Price represented his country in 22 Tests, 102 one day internationals and 16 Twenty20 internationals, claiming 193 wickets across the formats.

He was included in Zimbabwe’s squad for the ongoing ODI series against India, but failed to gain selection for any of the three matches in Harare.

"I was going to wait until my contract expired (after the India series) to call it a day but, yes, I've decided to retire from international cricket," Price told ESPNCricinfo.

"I won't be going with the guys to Bulawayo. I'm retired."

The nephew of former world number one golfer Nick Price, Ray made his international debut in 1999 before moving to England in 2004 and spending three and a half seasons with Worcestershire.

He returned to the international fold at the back end of 2007 and duly established himself as a fine performer in 50-over cricket, rising to second in the ICC ODI bowling rankings in 2009.
