South Africa allrounder Chris Morris has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.
While declaring his decision to hang his boots after a 12-year career, the 34-year-old Morris also said that he will take up a coaching role with South African domestic side Titans.
Morris’ instagram caption read, “Thanks to all who have played a part in my journey whether it be big or small…it’s been a fun ride!,”.
Morris represented South Africa 69 times across all formats taking 94 wickets in all.
He defined his play as a bowling allrounder, who often sent the speedgun beyond 140kph, and was also a hard-hitting lower-order batter.
A late bloomer who made his first-class debut at the age of 22, and during the 2015-16 season, he debuted in the New Year’s Test against England making an impression with 69.
