Bermuda's South Africa-born all-rounder Saleem Mukuddem has announced his retirement from all international cricket following the country's exit from the cricket World Cup.

Bermuda's most successful bowler during group-stage matches in Trinidad & Tobago, Mukuddem informed coach Gus Logie and the media of his decision to step down by e-mail Monday, according to the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).

Mukuddem, still angered by a one-match suspension which cost him his place in for the clash against India, wrote: "I hereby wish to announce my retirement from international cricket effective now.

"I am looking forward to spending more time with my family."

The Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) suspended Mukuddem last week after he reportedly failed to attend a team function.

Another senior member of Bermuda 's World Cup squad, wicket-keeper Dean Minors, indicated last week that he would also be retiring from international cricket.
