England women's Ashes, World Cup and World Twenty20 winner Isa Guha has announced her retirement from international cricket.

Guha, a former world number one-ranked bowler, will continue to play for her county Berkshire.

The 26-year-old seamer, who took 101 one-day international and 29 Test wickets in 83 and eight respective appearances, also represented her country in 22 Twenty20s during a 10-year career.

She took a match-winning nine for 100 to help England retain the Ashes in 2008 - a performance which pushed her to the top of the International Cricket Council rankings.

She said: "Playing for England has meant everything to me, but it feels like the right time for me to step away from the international stage."
