Indian opener Sehwag announces retirement

(AFP) Swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag, the only Indian batsman to score a triple century in a Test, announced his retirement on Tuesday from international cricket.

"God has been kind and I have done what I wanted to do," Sehwag said in a statement on his 37th birthday after again being overlooked by the selectors.

Sehwag, who played the last of his 104 Tests against Australia in 2013, scored 8,586 runs with an average of 49.34.
