Zimbabwe's young fast bowler Kyle Jarvis has surprised the world by announcing his retirement and will not going to represent his team against Pakistan in the upcoming days.

In a statement issued yesterday, Jarvis said he will now concentrate on county cricket only and will never come back to Zimbabwe. A few days earlier many Zimbabwean players boycotted the training camp over salary issues. Jarvis, who was one of those players, said he will now focus only on his county and T20 career as he is set to sign a three-year contract with Lancashire.

The 24-year-old bowler took 30 wickets in eight Tests; 27 in 24 ODIs; and 10 in nine T20s.

Zimbabwe, who had been gaining prominence on the international level in the late '90s, have been in decline for around 15 years because of poor decision making by the country's cricket board.

In past two years and a half, many key players have left the team, including  Sean Ervine, who left the side after World Cup 2011, and captain Tatenda Taibu, who took retirement at the age of just 29. And now the 24-year-old Jarvis has also parted ways with Zimbabwe
