Stephen Moore, the Derbyshire batsman has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. Moore was a part of Derbyshire’s plans this season, but has decided to call it time mid-way through the season at the age of 33. The South African born right-handed batsman featured in 151 First-Class matches and has scored 9390 runs at an average of 36.25.

Yahoo Eurosport quoted Moore, “I can’t speak highly enough of Derbyshire for the way they have handled my decision to retire, and for the warmth of my welcome and subsequent support for my family and I during my short stay at the club. The time is right for me to step down, focus on my career away from the game, and spend more time with my family.”

Moore earlier played for Worcestershire and Lancashire earlier. In 2009, he was selected for the England Lions team and scored a ton against the Australian team led by Ricky Ponting. His last game for Derbyshire was  last week. He had joined the county only after last season.
