Former Australia wicketkeeper Peter Nevill has decided to hang up his boots from international cricket for Australia.

He is 36 and after spending 13 years as a professional cricketer took this decision.

He has played 17 Tests and 9 T20Is for Australia when the team was in a transition phase in 2015-16, replacing Brad Haddin in the 2015 Ashes tour as wicketkeeper.

In the domestic circuit, Nevill has played most of his games for New South Wales Blues.

He decided to shift to NSW Blues because by that time Matthew Wade had appeared on the scene for Victoria.

Wade had left Tasmania because of Tim Paine and all three of them were Australia’s wicketkeepers.

In the T20 arena for Australia, in his 9 T20Is, he also participated in the 2016 T20 World Cup.

Nevill is thankful to everyone in the Australian as well as the NSW Blues side.

Now, Nevill will spend the majority of his time with his family and is also doing a Master’s degree to become a financial advisor.

He hopes to get some coaching roles in the future after doing a coaching cum playing stint for the Melbourne Stars in the recently concluded BBL.
