New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Luke Ronchi has announced his retirement from the international cricket at the age of 36.

Born in New Zealand but raised in Australia, Ronchi has played four Tests, 85 ODIs and 32 Twenty20 internationals for Black Caps.

The right-handed batsman, who represented Australia between 2008 and 2009, has averaged 23.67 in ODIs at a strike-rate of 114.50, and 18.89 in T20Is at a strike-rate of 141.33.

"It was a dream come true," the 36-year-old said. "I can't think of a better time to have been involved with New Zealand cricket.

"From the 2015 World Cup campaign through to the overseas tours of that time and some amazing games and series, it's been a genuine highlight for me.”

His knock of 16 against against Bangladesh at the Champions Trophy 2017 earlier this month on June 9 was his last for the New Zealand.
