Former Pakistan captain Sana Mir has announced his retirement from international cricket.

Mir, 3, has played 226 ODIs and T20s for Pakistan and has led his country in 13 Tests.

The spinner, who retired as Pakistan’s top wicket-taker in ODIs, is the fourth most connected all-time, when he scored 1,630 runs in the format.

Mir’s last ODI was in November 2012 and she did not play in the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup in Australia earlier this year.

“The last few months have given me a chance to think,” he said in a statement posted on the Pakistan Cricket Board’s website.

“I feel it’s the right time for me to move forward. I believe I have contributed to the best of my ability for my country and the sport.”
