Andre Nel Retires from International Cricket after Joining Surrey

South African fast bowler Andre Nel has announced his retirement from international cricket on Wednesday following reports came out that he had joined English county Surrey for a three-year contract. Surrey, who has been relegated to the second division of English first class cricket due to their poor show last season, is very happy to sign Nel. Surrey is generally regarded as one of the elite teams in English country cricket, considering the amount of success they achieved in the history. In fact, Surrey won the County Championship titles on three occasions (1999, 2000 and 2002). Nel took 123 test wickets in 36 matches, and from 79 one-day matches, he got 106 wickets. Nel is now very happy to have joined Surrey and is looking to contribute to the success of the county in the upcoming season. Nel has previous experience of playing in English country as he reported Essex and Northamptonshire earlier.
