New Zealand cricket all-rounder Corey Anderson has retired from New Zealand cricket as he signed a three-year contract with the upcoming T20 league in USA named Major League Cricket.
Corey Anderson said,
“It’s been a huge honor and extremely proud to represent New Zealand. I would have loved to have achieved and played more but just is what it is sometimes.”
The batsman further said,
“Different opportunities arise and send you in a direction you never thought would be a possibility. I am Very appreciative for everything that New Zealand Cricket has done for me,”
The All-rounder first rose to enormous fame with his 36-ball century in a match against West Indies in 2014, breaking Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s record of fastest One Day International (ODI) hundred in men’s cricket.
Corey Anderson first made his debut in international cricket in December 2012 and has represented his country in 13 Tests, 49 ODIs, and 31 T20I in eight years long career.
Corey is not the only international cricketer moving to USA for cricket. Earlier this week, Pakistani test cricketer Sami Aslam also left the Pakistan Cricket after a deal with USA Cricket.
