Shane Dowrich Announces International Retirement

Cricket West Indies (CWI) today announced that Shane Dowrich, the experienced wicket-keeper/batsman, has announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect and has withdrawn from the West Indies squad for the upcoming CG United One-Day International (ODI) Series against England. 

Dowrich made his international debut against Australia in Dominica in 2015. He played 35 Tests where he scored 1,570 runs including three centuries with a top score of 125 not out against Sri Lanka in Trinidad in 2018. Behind the stumps, he had 85 catches and five stumpings. He also played one ODI in Ireland in May 2019.

CWI thanked Dowrich for his contribution to West Indies cricket and wished him the best in his future endeavors. Miles Bascombe, CWI’s Director of Cricket said: “We want to thank Shane for contribution when he played for the West Indies. He is a disciplined, hard-working cricketer who always gave his utmost in front and behind the stumps. He had a memorable series in 2019 when he made an outstanding Test century on home soil in Barbados to help us beat England and win the Wisden Trophy. We respect his decision to retire and appreciate it is not an easy one to make. We wish him all the best as he steps away from the international stage.”
