David Willey of England announces his retirement a few days after not being included in the central contract; the 2023 World Cup will be his last tournament

<p>David Willey, an all-rounder for England, announced his retirement from cricket on Wednesday. He said on social media that this World Cup in India would be his last. Willey claimed that his choice was unrelated to England’s dismal World Cup result. With only one victory in six games, the reigning champions are positioned at the bottom of the standings. India, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and South Africa have all defeated them. It was only against Bangladesh that they prevailed. There is no way for the team captained by Jos Buttler to go to the semi-finals. In fact, they may lose out on a Champions Trophy spot in 2025 if they don’t win their next three games against Australia, Pakistan, and the Netherlands. This is because only the top eight teams from this 10-team World Cup will advance to that competition, which is scheduled to take place in Pakistan.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-262094″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-david-willey-of-england-announces-his-retirement-a-few-days-after-not-being-includ.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com david willey of england announces his retirement a few days after not being includ” width=”1326″ height=”745″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-david-willey-of-england-announces-his-retirement-a-few-days-after-not-being-includ.jpg 550w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-david-willey-of-england-announces-his-retirement-a-few-days-after-not-being-includ-390×220.jpg 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-david-willey-of-england-announces-his-retirement-a-few-days-after-not-being-includ-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1326px) 100vw, 1326px” title=”David Willey of England announces his retirement a few days after not being included in the central contract; the 2023 World Cup will be his last tournament 9″></p>
<p>“Therefore, after giving it some serious thought, I believe that the time has come for me to retire from all international cricket after the conclusion of the World Cup.</p>
<p>“I have taken great delight in wearing the shirt and have given the insignia on my chest my all. Being a member of a world-class white-ball team with some of the greatest players in the game is really an honor, Willey said.</p>
<p>“My choice has nothing to do with our World Cup performance; I believe I still have a lot more to contribute both on and off the field while I am playing my best cricket.</p>
<p>“I’m certain that everyone who knows me would agree that I will give this campaign all I have and more in the remaining days! I don’t know of any other method,” he said.</p>
<p>The left-arm seamer, who is also a valuable batsman down the order, may have said that England’s poor performance in this World Cup did not affect his decision, but he announced his retirement only a few days after the ECB opted not to include him in the key contracts. He is the only cricket player on the World Cup team that was left off of the main roster.</p>
<p>Willey has played in 43 T20Is and 70 ODIs for England. In ODIs, he has amassed 627 runs at a respectable average of 26. When you include his 93 wickets, you have the perfect example of a modern-day English white-ball specialist. His T20I stats are also rather respectable. In his 43 games, he has taken 51 scalps.</p>
<p>Along the road, I’ve experienced some very trying moments as well as created some wonderful friends and memories. I would not have been able to realize my aspirations without the sacrifice and steadfast support of my wife, two children, parents, and grandparents. He remarked, “I’m eternally grateful to you for sharing the special memories and picking up the pieces when I’ve fallen apart.”</p>
