Shane Bond retires from Test cricket
Advertisement
#1
Injury ravaged Kiwi paceman Shane Bond today bid adieu to the Test cricket but would continue playing one-day and Twenty20 formats.

The 34-year-old Bond, who had to withdraw from the Test series against Pakistan after tearing an abdominal muscle, said never ending injuries forced him to take the 'tough' decision.

"The hardest thing is that I've always considered myself a Test bowler ? and it was such a great feeling to be back in the team last month and playing Test match cricket with the Blackcaps.

"But looking back, so many of my injuries have come during Test cricket. Unfortunately my body just won't let me continue to play at that level, given the workload and demands of Test cricket," he said on the New Zealand Cricket website.
