South Africa opener Alviro Petersen has announced his retirement from international cricket.
The announcement was made immediately after South Africa’s eight-wicket win over the West Indies at Newlands on Wednesday.
The 34-year-old will continue to play county cricket the Johannesberg-based Lions for the next three seasons.
Petersen has struggled with form of late and managed just 86 runs in four innings in the three-test series against the West Indies.
“The last couple of months were really frustrating as I felt my form was there but I would like to have scored more runs,” he is quoted as saying by Reuters.
Petersen played 36 Tests from 2010, scoring 2093 runs at an average of 34.88.
