    Reiffel quits international cricket

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Australian World Cup team member Paul Reiffel has surprisingly announced his retirement from international cricket.

    Reiffel, a medium pace bowler who played in Australia's winning Cup team, said he no longer had the desire to play in top class cricket. He has withdrawn from the one-day side picked for the tour of Sri Lanka later this year.

    Reiffel, 33, played 35 tests, taking 104 wickets at an average of 26.96.

    He took five wickets in an innings five times, his best haul being 6-71 against England in Birmingham in 1993.

    Reiffel made 955 test runs at 26.53 with a highest score of 79 not out against South Africa on his home turf, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in 1997-98.

    He also played 92 one-day internationals, snaring 106 wickets at 29.20 with his best performance 4-13 also against South Africa.

    Reiffel said he would like to continue playing for the Victorian state team.
