Adelaide:

Former Australia Test bowler Jason Gillespie is retiring from Australian cricket to play in a rebel Twenty20 league in India, where he has signed a three-year contract.

Gillespie, who plays for South Australia state, waited until Friday to announce his retirement from Australian cricket during the lunch break of his domestic match against Queensland at Adelaide Oval.

He had been widely expected to leave the game and pursue interests in the rebel Indian Cricket League but was not able to formally make his intentions clear until after the match had started.

Otherwise he risked being made ineligible to play in his farewell match because the ICL is not sanctioned by Cricket Australia.
