Netherlands batter Miranda Veringmeier has announced her retirement from international cricket.

The 29-year-old made her debut for the Netherlands in 2008, and since then, she has been a vital cog of the team over the last decade. Veringmeier has played 15 ODIs and 22 T20Is, amassing 460 runs across formats.

She has taken nine catches and effected one stumping for the Netherlands, and in the few innings where she got to bowl, Veringmeier has taken two wickets in the shortest format.

Veringmeier was part of the Associate Rookie program for the Women's Big Bash League in 2015. The batter trained with Adelaide Strikers during her time in Australia.

She also played for the Netherlands in the English domestic system for six years between 2009 and 2015, where she scored all four of her List-A hundreds. In 2015, she was the third-highest run-getter in the county championship. She played for Worcestershire in the T20 Cup the next year.

Veringmeier last played for the Netherlands in the ICC T20 World Cup Europe Qualifiers in August 2021. They finished third in the tournament with two wins from four matches.

She is the second-highest run-scorer for Netherlands in T20Is behind Sterre Kalis, who has made 556 runs in 17 matches. Veringmeier also has the highest strike for Netherlands in the shortest format. With Netherlands not playing ODIs since 2011, she did not get many opportunities in the 50-over format.
