MOS­MAN PARK res­i­dent Andrew Walton will be trav­el­ling to Birm­ing­ham to take part in the 2016 In­door Cricket Masters World Se­ries to be run from Oc­to­ber 2129.

It will be the sea­soned crick­eter’s 10th and fi­nal World Se­ries for his ca­reer, with him set to pull the plug on com­pet­i­tive cricket at its com­ple­tion.

Walton, who has played in­door cricket for Zim­babwe, Eng­land and Aus­tralia, is cur­rently the most capped player in the world in the sport.

The 51-year-old said he be­lieved now was the right time to re­tire.

“I’m go­ing back to where it all started in Eng­land,” he said. “I feel like it’s the right time, to fin­ish on a good note. This sport has taken me all around the world and has helped me meet many peo­ple.”
