Sean Williams Decided to Step Away from International Cricket

Before leaving for Ireland to play a limited-overs series, Sean Williams wrote a letter to the Zimbabwe cricket team management announcing to step away from international cricket. Sean Williams is retiring at the end of Zimbabwe’s upcoming Ireland and Scotland series.

Zimbabwe Test captain Sean Williams has decided to retire from international cricket after a tour of Ireland. Williams, who has played 14 Tests, 137 ODIs, and 46 T20I matches for Zimbabwe, has a ten-month contract with the board.

There are rumors that Sean is retiring suddenly, though it is not known for sure. Williams wants to say goodbye to cricket out of pride with the Zimbabwe Cricket Board and coach Lalchand Rajput.

Despite being with the Zimbabwe team, Sean Williams could be dropped from the five-match Twenty20 XI against the Irish. However, Williams has coach Lalchand Rajput’s plans for the three-match ODI series against Ireland. Zimbabwe’s Test captain is so upset with the coach that if the ZC does not intervene, Sean Williams will return home without playing three ODIs against Ireland and three T20s against Scotland.

The Zimbabwe Cricket Board had to announce a total of five captains from the beginning of 2020. Craig Irwin will lead the team in Ireland and Scotland after Chamu Chibaba, Brendon Taylor, Sikander Raza, and Williams in the last few series.

Zimbabwe’s series against Ireland starts tomorrow (August 26) with a T20 match. 5 T20s will be held on 28, 29 August and 1, 2, 4 September respectively. Zimbabwe-Ireland will meet in the ODI series on September 8, 10, and 13.

Zimbabwe will then take to the field in the first T20 against Scotland on 15 September. The remaining two matches of the series will be played on September 18 and 19.
