Former New Zealand batsman Jamie How has announced that he will retire from all forms of cricket after the 2014-15 Ford Trophy.
How, who represented New Zealand in 19 Tests, 41 ODIs and five Twenty20 Internationals, will pursue a career in the corporate sector after hanging up his boots.
“These are never easy decisions to make but the time has come to embrace an opportunity outside cricket,” How said. “The role with Toyota New Zealand was too good to pass up. I really thank them for the opportunity they’re providing, and I’m looking forward to the new challenge.
“Most importantly I’m looking forward to spending more regular time with my young family and to establishing a career after cricket. I am very proud to have played for my country and was very fortunate to play alongside and against some of the very best players in the world.”
New Zealand Cricket (NZC) chief executive David White added: “It’s always a poignant time when someone like Jamie decides to retire but I’m delighted he’s found a career outside cricket and wish him well in his endeavours.”
