Chris Morris retires from all forms of cricket

The allrounder is set to take up a coaching role with domestic side Titans

South African allrounder Chris Morris has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket and is set to take up a coaching role with domestic side 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," Morris wrote on his Instagram page.

A right-arm pacer and explosive batter, Morris made his Test debut as late as 2016 and featured in only four games in the traditional format, making 173 runs and taking 12 wickets.

Morris, who last played for South Africa in the 2019 World Cup, represented his country in four Tests, 42 ODIs and 23 T20Is, picking up 48 and 34 wickets respectively. With the bat in hand, Morris scored 467 runs in ODIs and 133 in T20Is respectively.

Morris played for Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings franchises in the IPL.

He turned out to be the biggest beneficiary among South African cricketers in the IPL when he was bought by Chennai Super Kings for a whopping Rs 3.32 crore in the 2013 players' auction. At the IPL 2021 auction, he was signed by Rajasthan for INR 16.25 crore.

Morris had a superb career in the shortest format of the game. He took 290 wickets in 234 T20s and also scored 1868 runs at a strike rate of just over 150.
