The 35-year-old Dwyer said he is happy with how his career has shaped up.

New Delhi: Legendary Australian hockey player Jamie Dwyer is all set to call time on his illustrious career within next two months, ruling out any possibility of representing the 'Kookaburras' in their Champions Trophy defence in India later this year.

Asked if the Indian hockey lovers would see him in action in December, Dwyer said from Perth, "No I don't think I am going to play in the Champions Trophy (in December this year). There are very mild chances of that. I am undecided at the moment (whether to retire from international hockey). I will make a decision in the next two months."
