Australia fast bowler Doug Bollinger retires
SYDNEY (AP) — Former Australia fast bowler Doug Bollinger has announced his retirement from all cricket aged 36.
Bollinger took exactly 50 wickets in 12 tests at an average of 25.9 and 62 wickets in 39 one-day internationals at 23.9. He also made nine Twenty20 appearances for Australia and played 124 first class matches for New South Wales.
The burly left-armer claimed two five-wicket test hauls, against the West Indies and New Zealand, with a best return of 5-28. He played all of his tests in 2009 and 2010, losing his place after the second match against England in Adelaide during the 2010 Ashes Series.
He continued to play first class cricket, taking 411 wickets, and played in the Big Bash Twenty20 season until this year.
