South Africa all-rounder Chris Morris calls time on cricket career



Bowling all-rounder Chris Morris has announced his retirement from cricket, calling time on a career that saw him represent South Africa 69 times across all formats.

The 34-year-old made his debut for South Af-rica in 2012 and went on to play four tests, 42 One-Day Internationals and 23 Twenty20 internationals, taking 94 international wickets and scoring 773 runs.

He last played for South Africa in the 2019 ODI World Cup, in which he was their highest wicket-taker with 13.

Morris also earned million-dollar deals in the Indian Premier League on multiple occasions, be-coming the most expensive buy here in the tourna-ment’s history in February 2021 when he returned to the Rajasthan Royals for 162.5 million rupees. ($2.20 million).—Agencies
