New Zealand all-rounder Grant Elliott has confirmed his retirement from international cricket after signing a Kolpak deal to play for the Birmingham Bears in England’s Twenty20 competition.
The 38-year-old joins compatriot Colin de Grandhomme and Jeetan Patel in county cricket, which means he will be available as an overseas player.
