South African all-rounder Chris Morris, who was recently bought for a whopping 16.5 crore in the IPL 2021, has revealed that his days for playing cricket for his country are over. 

Morris, while speaking to Sportskeeda, said that he has had his discussions and hasn't spoken to Cricket South Africa since then. The all-rounder also touched the topic regarding how he along with Faf du Plessis and Imran Tahir were treated by the home board. 


“I had my discussions with whoever I needed to quite a while ago, I haven’t spoken to CSA since then. At the end of the day, how they treated Faf, Immi (Imran Tahir) or me is something they’ve to deal with, there is no way I can comment. I wasn’t a part of the negotiations, I haven’t been spoken to for a year, maybe longer than a year."

“So can’t really comment on what’s happening, a few stories are coming out, I know which one I can believe. It’s a touchy subject, there are so many different angles to it,” the 34-year-old said. 

Morris further added that he isn't the person who makes official announcements but has confirmed he won't be representing South Africa in the future and will focus on domestic cricket. 

“My playing days for South Africa are done. I am not one for announcing things and officially retiring and all of that. They know where I stand, I know where I stand, but my days are done for CSA, I think they know that.

“There hasn’t been an official retirement because that’s not how I am, but like I said, my international cricket days are done. I am focussing on domestic cricket and giving back to the team as much as I can. I was fortunate to represent South Africa in all 3 formats, I had an opportunity to represent my country,” Morris, who played 42 ODIs, 23 T20Is, and 4 test matches, concluded.
