Eoin Morgan, a former captain of England, announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Monday.
Morgan, who in 2019 guided England to its first-ever World Cup victory (in 50 overs), made his decision public on Twitter. “After much deliberation, I believe now is the right time to step away from the game that has given me so much over the years,” Morgan said in a statement on Twitter.
“I will undoubtedly miss the adventure and challenges of playing professional cricket. Since my retirement from international cricket, I have been able to spend more time with my loved ones, and I look forward to being able to do so more and more in the future.”
Before being called up by England in 2009, Dublin-born Morgan made his ODI debut for Ireland when he was 16 years old. Between 2006 and 2022, Morgan played in 16 Tests, 248 ODIs, and 115 T20Is.
He amassed 2458 T20I runs and 7701 ODI runs. In 16 Tests, he has 700 runs as well. In 126 One-Day Internationals and 72 Twenty20 Internationals, Morgan led England to 118 victories.
