The cricketer Daniel Vettori has officially retired from the Black Caps after an 18-year career with the national team.
Aged 18, Vettori was the youngest man to play Test cricket for New Zealand and played a record 113 Tests for his country.
The 36 year old captained New Zealand in all forms of the game between 2007 and 2011 and is one of only eight players to take 300 wickets (362) and score 3000 runs (4531) in Tests.
In 295 one-day-internationals, Vettori took 305 wickets and scored 2253 runs.
The all-rounder, who bowled left arm orthodox spin, says he's grateful to have ended his career playing in the World Cup final.
"Finishing on a high and part of a very good team is very satisfying."
Vettori, who was named in the ICC's World Cup team, leaves for India on Thursday where he coaches Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
