Below you’ll find the entirety of Eoin Morgan’s international retirement statement:

“I am announcing my retirement from international cricket with immediate effect after much deliberation and consideration. It’s been a difficult choice, but I believe it is the perfect moment for me and both of the England white-ball teams I’ve led to this point, both personally and professionally, to call time on this chapter of my career “said Morgan in a statement released by the ECB.

“My family’s support has always been an important part of my journey from Ireland to World Cup glory, and I’ve never forgotten that. I want to express my gratitude to my parents, Tara, and the rest of my extended family for their unwavering support during both my successful and less successful professional careers. This extraordinary voyage would not have been possible without your support, “he went on to say.

Morgan went on to discuss his decision to retire: “Additionally, I owe a debt of gratitude to my teammates, coaches, supporters, and those in the background who have helped me along the way. In spite of all that I’ve accomplished as a player and captain, the most important thing I’ll take away from this experience is the friendships I’ve formed along the way.”

“Although I’ve had the privilege of playing in two World Cup-winning teams, the future of English white-ball teams is brighter than ever. We’re better equipped than we’ve ever been in terms of knowledge, strength, and breadth. I’m stoked to see what happens. While I wait to see what the future holds, I plan to continue playing at a domestic level as long as I am able to. My team, London Spirit, and I are looking forward to participating in this year’s The Hundred for the second time “she said.
