"Playing for England pushes you to the limit and I'm grateful for the experiences which have made me better, on and off the pitch.

"The memories I have made with some amazing teams are ones I will always cherish and I would like to thank everyone who has been a part of my England journey."

Wilson featured in three World Cups for England and was a member of the team that became world champions at Lord's in 2017.

A right-handed batter and outstanding fielder, Wilson will continue to play domestic cricket for Sunrisers in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and Charlotte Edwards Cup, and Oval Invincibles in The Hundred.

England Women's head coach Lisa Keightley added: "Fran has served her country with distinction for over a decade and can be very proud of the work she's put in and of what she's achieved.

"It's a very difficult decision to retire from international cricket, but our loss will be the domestic game's gain. Fran has always given everything for England and I know she'll continue to do so in domestic cricket."
