“The last 14 years have been a dream come true. I fulfilled my childhood dreams by playing cricket for Trinidad and Tobago and West Indies.
“My career gave me the opportunity to see the world, make friends from different cultures, and still be able to appreciate where I came from.”
A Franchise cricket continues to play:-
Ramdin said he would, however, continue to play franchise cricket. Despite representing the Guyana Amazon Warriors, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, and Trinbago Knight Riders from 2013 to 2021.

The Involved in a Tri-Series:-
His ODI debut, against India, later included a tri-series on the tour. three teams.
He was in trouble with the ICC again only a year later when, playing against Pakistan, he claimed a grounded catch on Misbah-ul-Haq in the Champions Trophy.
Ramdin stumbled trying to take the ball forward but still went up in celebration. On that occasion, Ramdin was suspended for two ODIs and his full match fee was deducted.

Ramdin led his country in 17 matches:-
In all, Ramdin led his country in 17 matches – 13 Tests, three T20Is, and one ODI – before dropping in September 2015, when Jason Holder replaced him at the helm.
The results were mixing. The West Indies won four of those 13 Tests, all at home against New Zealand, Bangladesh [two], and England, but lost seven, including five at home.
West Indies won the only ODI they led, while it was one win and two losses in T20Is.
Later, in mid-2016, Ramdin tweeted about dropping from the Test squad against India before the West Indies team became official.
