Oram calls it quits from Test cricket

Announcing his decision, which is effective immediately, Oram said a reduced workload would allow him to prolong his international career.

“I have decided to retire from Test cricket. This decision has been a very tough one and has not been made without careful consideration and discussion with those closest to me,” 31-year-old Oram, who is currently nursing a hamstring injury that cut short his Champions Trophy participation, told reporters here.

“The last few years have shown that my body cannot handle the strains and stresses that come with being an all-rounder.”
