Wellington - New Zealand cricket captain Daniel Vettori has said he is retiring from Twenty20 cricket and is considering his future in one-day internationals.

The 32-year-old Vettori confirmed, after New Zealand's World Cup semifinal defeat by Sri Lanka on Tuesday, that he will stand down as captain in all forms of the game.

He said he will continue as a Test player, but has not yet decided whether the five-wicket loss to Sri Lanka in Colombo would be his last one-day international.

Vettori said, with New Zealand not scheduled to play again until it tours Zimbabwe in October, he will take time to consider his one-day international future.
