"My playing days for South Africa are done" - Chris Morris


The right-handed all-rounder of the South Africa cricket team has confirmed that he has played enough for the nation and there is no possibility of his comeback.

During an exclusive chat with Sportskeeda, Chris Morris had a few words about his retirement plans and his comeback in the national squad. "I had my discussions with whoever I needed to quite a while ago, I haven’t spoken to CSA since then.

At the end of the day, how they treated Faf (du Plessis), Immi (Imran Tahir) or me is something they’ve to deal with, there is no way I can comment. I wasn’t a part of the negotiations, I haven’t been spoken to for a year, maybe longer than a year.

So can’t really comment on what’s happening, a few stories are coming out, I know which one I can believe. It’s a touchy subject, there are so many different angles to it," Chris Morris said to Sportskeeda.

The all-rounder also claimed that he's going to focus on domestic cricket as there is no place for him in the international squad. "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," Morris added.

When asked about his retirement, Chris Morris once again said that it is not an official announcement from him as he is looking to represent the other franchises in the domestic circuit all around the globe.

"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 focussing 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," he further added.
