David Shepherd says he will remain involved in cricket despite umpiring his final Test.
Shepherd's 92nd and final Test was in Jamaica
An emotional Shepherd, 65, was hugged by players after overseeing Pakistan's 136-run second Test victory over West Indies at Jamaica's Sabina Park.
"Cricket has been my life. I don't want to say goodbye completely," he said.
"I'd like to have some input into it. It has been everything to me and I would like to give something back - what, at this moment, I don't know."
West Indies great Brian Lara presented Shepherd with a bat inscribed: "Thank-you for the service, the memories and the professionalism. Enjoy your retirement."
The former Gloucestershire batsman stood in 92 Tests and three World Cup finals.
He will officiate in five more one-day internationals in England this year and see out the end of the county season.
"It's been a very long road but basically a very happy one," he added.
"It's very important to get the respect of the players. It's also very important for umpires to respect players - it's a mutual thing."
