LONDON: Canterbury Cricket and Wellington Cricket veterans Stephen Murdoch has announced his resignation from domestic cricket after 12 years of a professional career.

The Wellington-born player played 87 first class matches, 71 Register A and 58 T20 for the two provinces, gathering more than 9,000 matches running over 18 centuries.

“I am fortunate to share a dressing room with great teammates, coaches and support staff throughout my career,” Murdoch said in an official statement.

“I have some happy memories over the years from my school team, the team from the age group and the cricket club to the Firebirds Wellington team and the Canterbury men’s team.

“It is an honor and honor to represent and lead two very proud associations,” he added.

The 36-year-old holds the Wellington record for the highest record in the first class season with 998 he achieved in 2014/15 and ended his sixth career in the all-time top scorer list for Wellington.
