Canada's John Davison set to retire

Bangalore, Mar 15: Canadian all-rounder John Davison has bid adieu to international cricket saying that the ICC World Cup 2011 Group A match against Australia in Bangalore on Mar 16 will be his last appearance, said a report.

ESPN Cricinfo has reported that the 41-year old is all set to call it a day. Davison also the oldest player in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, is not in the best of the forms in the ongoing multi-nation gala event.

John Davison first hogged the limelight when he scored a 67-ball century against the West Indies in the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup held in South Africa. It was then the fastest century in a World Cup game.

Davison, according to many the best cricketer to have ever played for Canada, has scored 785 runs in 31 One Day internationals, with a career-best score of 111 in the game against the West Indies in the 2003 World Cup.

He has also claimed 35 wickets, at a healthy average of 29.65 and a impressive economy rate of 4.41. His best bowling effort of 3/15 came against Kenya also in the 2003 World Cup.
