Netherlands captain Peter Borren, 34, has retired from international cricket with immediate effect. Pieter Seelaar, the 30-year-old bowler, will take over the captaincy as Netherlands look to build towards the 2020 World T20 qualifiers and the ICC ODI Championships.
Jeroen Smits, the former Netherlands wicketkeeper, has been appointed the new team manager.
The Royal Dutch Cricket Association (KNCB) paid tribute via a press release issued on Wednesday evening, but that did not give him the chance to announce the news himself, Borren said in a tweet.
"Oh. Wow, ok. Didn't realise that the Dutch Cricket Association were going to release this tonight before I had a chance. But yeah...ok...what they said I guess."
Borren last featured for Netherlands in the World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe in March.
