Former Zimbabwe player Sean Ervine, who moved to County side Hampshire at the age of 21 thus ending his international career way back in 2005, has now announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.

Ervine, 35, was loaned out to second-division Derbyshire earlier this season. In his first season with Hampshire, Ervine was part of the team that won the County Championship after a long gap of 13 years with centuries in the semi-final and final.

Ervine has scored 11,390 first-class runs and 280 wickets, 5716 runs and 206 wickets in List A cricket, apart from 3082 T20 runs and 68 wickets.

Derbyshire captain Billy Godleman said: “Sean shared with the group today that he’s had a long hard think about his career and he’s decided to retire as of today from the game.

“Although he’s only been with us for a couple of games, we’ve all played against him for many years and he’s been a fantastic performer and most importantly a really good solid cricket man and one of the good guys in professional cricket.”
