WELLINGTON:

New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris announced his retirement from Test cricket on Sunday but said he hoped to continue playing in limited-overs matches and Twenty20 internationals.

The reliable middle order batsman and useful medium pace bowler scored 1,586 runs at an average of 36.04 in 29 Tests over six years. He scored a century and half century on debut against the West Indies in the Caribbean in 2002, contributing to New Zealand's win in that series.

The 32-year-old Styris is one of a number of New Zealand players who has signed to play in the officially sanctioned Indian Premier League.
