So All-rounder Deandra Dottin of the West Indies made her immediate retirement from international cricket known on Monday. The announcement was made following Barbados’ nine-wicket loss to Australia in the ongoing Commonwealth Games. In a lengthy message posted on Twitter, Deandra Dottin declared her retirement from international cricket.
So please accept my letter as my official resignation from the West Indies senior women’s squad, effective August 1st, 2022, Deandra Dottin wrote on Twitter. I’ve thought a lot about making this statement since I’ve always had a passion for cricket. However, after the fire has gone out, one must take some time to reconsider their loyalty. So I’ve had many obstacles in my cricket career that I had to get beyond. However, my ability to thrive and reignite my love has been hampered by the current climate and team culture.
I acknowledge that my ability to work wonderfully has been hindered by adhering to team culture and atmosphere, she said. “With great sorrow but without regret.”
