South Africa pacer Chris Morris has revealed that he will not play for South Africa again. Morris said even though he has not officially announced his retirement, Cricket South Africa (CSA) is aware that he is done playing for the national team. Morris was also not named in South Africa’s T20 World Cup squad along with other senior players like Faf du Plessis and Imran Tahir.

“My playing days for South Africa are done. I am not one for announcing things and officially retiring and all of that. They know where I stand, I know where I stand, but my days are done for CSA, I think they know that,” Chirs Morris told Sportskeeda.

The 34-year-old further revealed that his focus is on playing the various T20 leagues across the globe. The all-rounder, however, said he would continue playing domestic cricket for South Africa and contribute to the team as much as he can. Morris was also asked about making the retirement news official to which he said, “There hasn’t been an official retirement because that’s not how I am, but like I said, my international cricket days are done. I am focusing on domestic cricket and giving back to the team as much as I can. I was fortunate to represent South Africa in all 3 formats, I had an opportunity to represent my country. If you had asked me the same question a few months ago, I would have given you a longer answer but right now I am content with my life and my career,” the all-rounder was quoted as saying.

Morris represented South Africa in 42 ODIs, 23 T20Is, and 4 Tests. He has taken 94 wickets across formats, in addition to scoring 744 runs. He last played for his country in 2019 50-over Cricket World Cup.
