All-rounder Dimitri Mascarenhas will retire at the end of the campaign after 18 years with Hampshire.

Former England international Dimitri Mascarenhas has confirmed that he will retire from all forms of the game at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old Hampshire all-rounder has made the decision because of an Achilles injury that has troubled him for some time.

"It's been the toughest decision of my life to call time on my career at Hampshire," he told reporters. "I feel I have so much left, but my Achilles just isn't up to it and, as a result, I have to retire.

"I have had an amazing time here for 18 seasons. There have been many highs and lows, but one thing that has stayed constant is the guys I have played with. All have been tremendous talents and, more importantly, top blokes."

Mascarenhas featured in 20 one-day internationals and 14 Twenty20 matches for England.
