Carters retires from cricket

12 May 2017

Ryan Carters has retired from all forms of cricket.

The Sydney Sixers congratulate Ryan Carters on a wonderful career following his decision to retire from all forms of cricket.

Carters, who joined the Sixers in BBL|04, is leaving the game at the age of 26 to pursue higher education with the goal of leadership and service.

His legacy will be the introduction of the Batting for Change Cup, and the initiative from which that comes, that saw the Sixers fans help raise over $400,000 since its inception.

Those funds have gone to help women gain tertiary education in countries such as India and Nepal.

His career highlights include playing in the BBL|04 Final against the Perth Scorchers in Canberra, as well as winning the Sheffield Shield and Matador One Day Cup with the NSW Blues, and scoring 209 against New Zealand while representing the Cricket Australia XI in 2015.

“Ryan has been a great ambassador for the Sixers both on and off the field and we are thankful for the time and effort he has put in,” said Remond.

“His energy and dedication to Batting for Change underpins what Ryan is about, and we have enjoyed working with him on the initiative to help achieve the fundraising goals.

“We wish Ryan all the best for his future, we know whatever he sets his mind to he will see great success.”
