Australian pace bowler Stuart Clark said on Monday he was retiring from first-class cricket after 24 Tests and 39 one-day internationals.

The 36-year-old claimed 94 Test wickets at 23.86, including 20 wickets in his first series against South Africa in 2006 and nine wickets in his Test debut in Cape Town.
