So on Monday, West Indies all-rounder Deandra Dottin announced her immediate retirement from international cricket. Following Barbados’ nine-wicket loss to Australia in the ongoing Commonwealth Games, the statement was made. Deandra Dottin announced her retirement from international cricket in a lengthy tweet.
So, with effect from August 1st, 2022, please accept this letter as my formal resignation from the West Indies senior women’s team, Deandra Dottin stated on Twitter. I’ve given this phrase a lot of thinking because I’ve always had a passion for cricket. One must, however, take some time to reevaluate their allegiance after the fire has been put out. Therefore, I’ve had to overcome a lot of challenges throughout my cricket career. However, the current environment and team culture have made it difficult for me to flourish and rekindle my love.
I confess that subscribing to team culture and atmosphere has prevented me from working superbly, she remarked. Without regret, yet with immense grief.

The 31-year-old has so represented West Indies in 146 ODIs and 126 T20Is. She started playing video games in 2008 and is known as one of the most destructive gamers in game history.
She amassed 3,727 and 2,697 runs in ODIs and 62 and 72 wickets in T20Is, respectively, while also scoring runs with the bat.
“I appreciate the chances that have been presented to me, and I have given this decision a lot of thought. Being able to play for and represent the West Indies has therefore been an honor. I’ve developed as a player throughout the course of my 14-year career, and I’ve worked extremely hard in the weight room. Observe what she said.
“This growth-related combo has made it easier for me to consider what matters most to me in life. Since it has impeded my capacity to perform to the maximum standard, I am aware that I can no longer uphold the team culture and atmosphere, but I do not regret it, she continued.
