"I have had a wonderful career playing for Australia and have made some amazing memories and friendships along the way," Bulow said.

"I still love playing cricket but feel now was the right time to step away from international duties. My passion and focus for the game is still there and look forward to continuing the domestic season with the Fire.

"I would really like thank the coaches, selectors and support staff that have helped me through the years, their guidance has been invaluable," she added.

Women’s National Selection Panel (WNSP) Chair Julie Savage said: "Mel returned to the Southern Stars squad, after a period out of the game, on the strength of some outstanding domestic form, so the WNSP are pleased that despite Mel's retirement from international cricket, she will still don the maroon colours for Queensland Fire."
