WEB DESK: Former Australian Player of the Year Clint McKay announces retirement on Friday after 11-year first class and international career. Victoria speedster will continue to play with Leicestershire in England.
McKay played a single Test for Australia against the West Indies in 2009, as well as six T20 Internationals, but the fast bowler excelled in the 50-over format, finishing with an outstanding bowling record in 59 ODIs.
McKay played in Victoria’s 2008-09 Sheffield Shield-winning side.
It’s been a pleasure to be involved with @bushrangers for past 11 years. All great things come to an end. What an amazing time I have had

After taking 81 wickets for English County side Leicestershire last year across all formats, he will return to play for the Foxes for another northern summer.
Grace Road has a strong Australian presence, with Leicestershire coached by former Test allrounder Andrew McDonald and captained by South Australia opener Mark Cosgrove, in addition to McKay.
