Morgan made a statement about how he made an instantaneous announcement on his retirement from international cricket. It was with immediate impact that he did so. After giving the matter a significant amount of thought and attention, he has arrived at the opinion that it is necessary to make this announcement.
To call time on what has without a doubt been the most fun and fulfilling chapter of career hasn’t been a simple choice, but he think now is the appropriate moment to do so, both for me, personally, and for both England white-ball teams he has led up to this point, Root said. It was not an easy decision to close the book on what was without a doubt the most enjoyable and fruitful chapter of his professional career.
“He had the good fortune to be a part of two teams that went on to win the World Cup, but I feel that the long-term prospects for England’s white-ball teams are stronger than they have ever been. In compared to any other point in our history, we now possess a depth of character, breadth of experience, and strength that has never before been seen. I have an incredibly high level of excitement at the prospect of staying current with everything that is going on.
