Elliott announces ODI retirement


New Zealand all-rounder Grant Elliott has announced his retirement from one-day international cricket.

Elliott's international career appeared to be on the rocks before a recall for the 2015 Cricket World Cup, but he proved his worth with an unbeaten 84 against the country of his birth - South Africa - sending the Black Caps into the final.

After returning to New Zealand following defeat in the World Twenty20 semi-final against England on Wednesday, the 37-year-old stated he has played his last match in the 50-over format.

"I'm going to reassess, let the dust settle," Elliott is quoted as saying by Newshub.

"As long as I'm still enjoying my cricket, I haven't really made a call on anything yet.

"I've played my last one-day game, but there are three formats. I won't be considered for Test cricket I don't think - I haven't seen my Test clothing for a number of years."
