Cape Town, Jan 11 (MNN) South African all-rounder Chris Morris announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Tuesday.
Morris said that he will be taking up a coaching role with the Titans.
“Today I announce my retirement from all forms of cricket! Thanks to all who have played a part in my journey whether it be big or small… it’s been a fun ride! Delighted to be taking up a coaching role at @titanscricket #lifebeginsnow,” Chris Morris wrote on his Instagram post.
It’s believed the arrival of his second child contributed to Morris’ decision to step away from the game and to be able to focus more on his family.

The 34-year-old made his international debut in December 2012 against New Zealand and played his first ODI in 2013. The all-rounder played his first test match against England in 2016.

He last played for his country in an ODI against Australia in 2019. Since then he has been plying his trade in franchise leagues around the world.
He also played 81 IPL matches and last represented Rajasthan Royals in the league in the 2021 season.
