South Africa all-rounder Chris Morris onTuesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket and is set to take up a coaching role with domestic side Titans.
“Today I announce my retirement from all forms of cricket! Thanks to all who have played a part in my journey whether it be big or small it’s been a fun ride! Delighted to be taking up a coaching role at @titanscricket #lifebeginsnow,” Morris wrote on his Instagram page.
Morris represented South Africa in 69 international games across all formats and had been plying his trade in T20 leagues around the globe. Morris, who played for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021, has played four Tests, 42 ODIs, and 23 T20Is for South Africa. He last represented South Africa in the ODI World Cup in England in July 2019.
Notably, Morris became the costliest player at the IPL auction after being bought at INR 16.25 crores by Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2021 auction. A good hitter of the ball down the order and a prolific wicket-taker, Morris was the type of all-rounder any team would like to have in their ranks. However, his fitness issues hampered his international career
