England‘s Paul Collingwood has announced his retirement from Test cricket at the age of 34.

The Durham batsman, who has scored 4,259 runs in 68 Tests at an average of 40.25, will step down after the final Ashes Test against Australia in Sydney.

Collingwood is England’s Twenty20 captain and will continue to play limited-overs cricket for his country.

“Now is the time to ensure some of the younger players get an opportunity at Test level,” said Collingwood.
