Former England allrounder Cork retires at 40

London: Former England all-rounder Dominic Cork has announced his retirement from cricket at the age of 40.

Cork played 37 Test matches and 32 one-day internationals during a career which included spells with Derbyshire, Lancashire and Hampshire in the county game.

Cork says his decision is partly motivated by a desire to spend more time with his family following the death of his father recently. He says "it`s a hard decision, but it`s the right decision for me."

Cork made his England debut in a one-day international against Pakistan in 1992, and his Test debut in 1995 against West Indies at Lord`s.

He played his last England matches in both forms of the game against India in 2002.
