The veteran Sunil Narine last played for West Indies in 2019; ever since then, he hasn't gotten an opportunity to play in any form of international cricket. Narine has decided to retire; he made the news official through an Instagram post.

All his fans must be disheartened to hear this news. However, on a brighter note, Narine will play in the Super50 Cup. In his 12 years journey, he has picked up 92 wickets in ODI's where his best bowling figures were 6/27, and in T20, he has taken 52 wickets with best bowling figures of 4/12.

The next ICC T20 World Cup is going to take place in USA and West Indies; it will be fascinating to see West Indies 15 men's squad.

Sunil Narine retirement message

In a recent Instagram post, Sunil Narine said the following about his retirement: "I appreciate it has been over four years since I last played for West Indies but today I am announcing my retirement from international cricket," Narine said as quoted by

"Publicly I am a man of few words but privately there are a few people who have given me unwavering support throughout my career and helped me realise my dream of representing West Indies and to you I express my deepest gratitude.

Narine further said: "I would like to acknowledge and thank Cricket West Indies, the coaching staff, passionate West Indies fans and of course my teammates who enabled me play at the highest level, in all formats and with some memorable successes." This year has not been the best for West Indies in the cricket world as they were not featured in the ongoing cricket World Cup due to qualification issues.

Hopefully, this gives youngsters an opportunity to rise and showcase their skills and get West Indies back to where it was.
