Eoin Morgan announces retirement from all forms of cricket

England’s World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan has announced his retirement from all forms of the game with immediate effect. The hard-hitting southpaw, who had quit international cricket last July, will no longer play in the franchise-based leagues he has been participating in of late.

The 36-year-old represented London Spirit in the Hundred last year and took the field for New York Strikers in the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament a couple of months ago. Morgan also represented Paarl Royals in the recently-concluded inaugural SA20.

Morgan confirmed that he will be offering his insights as a commentator and a pundit around the globe moving forward. In his decorated international career, Morgan managed to score over 10,000 runs and was renowned for helming England’s white-ball revolution post the 2015 World Cup ignominy that ultimately saw the hosts clinch the title for the first time in history, in the 2019 edition.
