English speed bowler David Willey, who is currently playing for his country in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, has formally announced his retirement from international cricket.
The 33-year-old cricket player announced the news to his supporters and admirers on Instagram during this esteemed competition.
Willey, who made his England squad debut against Ireland in May 2015, has made the decision to hang up his boots following the conclusion of the major event.
Throughout the ongoing tournament, Willey has been a remarkable performer for England's cricket team, taking five significant wickets at an astounding average of 27.20. He was not only a terrific bowler but also a useful batsman, scoring 42 runs at the bottom of the batting order.
He will carry on playing short-form cricket both nationally and internationally in the interim. Leading Northamptonshire in the T20 Blast and donning the Welsh Fire colors in The Hundred, Willey shown his leadership abilities. He is prepared to play in the ILT20 in January 2024 as a representative of the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders. In addition, there's a chance he might lock down a position for the forthcoming Indian Premier League season with the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
