Bridgetown:Veteran West Indies wicketkeeper Ridley Jacobs is set to hang up his cricketing boots at the end of the domestic season in the Caribbean.

The 37-year-old, who played in 65 tests and 147 One-day internationals for West Indies, underwent a knee surgery earlier this year and subsequently lost his place in the Windies side on the tour of England, said the upcoming season will be his last in first class cricket.

"I think the upcoming season will be my last year in first-class cricket so I want to give it my best shot and come out on a high," said Jacobs after being selected in the Leeward Islands side for the domestic season beginning next month.

The hard-hitting left-hander accumulated 2,577 test runs and made three centuries. He also snared 207 catches and effected 12 stumpings in tests.
