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.
