Robert Croft has announced his intention to retire from professional cricket at the end of the season after 25 years with Glamorgan.

The former England off-spinner has played 973 first-class matches in all formats, including 21 Tests and 50 one-day internationals for his country between 1996 and 2001.

Despite being 31 years old at the end of his England career, Croft extended his playing days by a further decade with his hometown club.

He is one of only nine players to have achieved the 1,000 wickets and 10,000 first-class runs double landmark and also won a County Championship and three National League titles with Glamorgan, for whom he has played since 1987.

Croft will stay on at the club in a coaching capacity after finishing his on-field career against Kent in four-day action at Cardiff next week.
