Harare - Former Zimbabwe national cricket captain Tatenda Taibu has decided to retire from the sport to devote his life to the church, Zimbabwe Cricket announced on Monday.

The 29-year-old batsman and wicketkeeper made his international debut in 2001, and became team captain three years later - the youngest in the country's history.

"I just feel that my true calling now lies in doing the Lord's work and although I am fortunate and proud to have played for my country, the time has come for me to put my entire focus on that part of my life," said Taibu in a statement issued by Zimbabwe Cricket.
