McKay retires from Australian Cricket

After carrying the drinks for Victoria's Sheffield Shield final-winning side in Glenelg last week, Clint McKay has called time on an 11-year Australian first-class and international career. McKay, who will continue to play his trade with Leicestershire in England's County Championship. He played a single Test for Australia against the West Indies in 2009, as well as six T20 Internationals, but the fast bowler excelled in the 50-over format, finishing with an outstanding bowling record in 59 ODIs. Victoria’s omission of a bowler in the class of McKay is a testament to their depth, something that he’s been proud to be a part of. The right-armer said

It's been a pleasure to be involved with @bushrangers for past 11 years. All great things come to an end. What an amazing time I have had

If the team hadn’t been so successful, it would have been a lot harder to take

He became a key fixture in Australia’s one-day side from 2009 - where he picked up the wickets of Indians Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni on international debut in Hyderabad - to his last match for Australia in early 2014, taking 97 wickets at 24.37, including a hat-trick against England. McKay played in Victoria’s 2008-09 Sheffield Shield-winning side and also had stints with Indian Premier League teams the Mumbai Indians in 2012 and Sunrisers Hyderabad the following year.
