After the 2023 ICC World Cup, David Willey will retire from playing cricket internationally

After the 2023 ICC World Cup, David Willey will retire from playing cricket internationally. The hard-hitting lower-order batsman, 33, was the only player in the struggling 15-man England squad in India reigning champions who was not offered a contract of any type.

As a result of that choice, Willey found himself in the odd situation of trying to salvage England’s dismal title defence while being aware that his managers were not willing to guarantee his future as an international cricket player.

As he announced his retirement on Instagram, Willey wrote, “I never wanted this day to come.”England is currently ranked last among the ten teams competing in the ICC World Cup 2023 in India, having only won one of their six games thus far.

Willey took 3-45 in Lucknow last weekend, which included removing star batsman Virat Kohli for zero, but his total was insufficient to stop the undefeated hosts from defeating England by 100 runs.

“I’ve only ever dreamed of playing cricket for England since I was a young boy,” Willey continued. “I have put my all into the badge on my chest and worn the shirt with great pride.”

Even though Jos Buttler’s team still has three group matches left in the ICC World Cup 2023, David Willey made the news. The first match is against Australia, the team’s bitter rivals, on Saturday in Ahmedabad.

Willey has represented England in 70 One-Day Internationals and 43 Twenty20s. He was left off of the team just before the competition, and fast bowler Jofra Archer replaced him, hence he was not present for their victory in the 2019 World Cup.

However, David Willey was a part of the English team that won the T20 World Cup in Australia the previous year.He stated that England’s World Cup performances had “nothing to do” with his decision to leave international cricket.

“I’m confident that everyone who knows me would agree that I will give this campaign everything I have and more in the remaining days! I don’t know of any other method,” he wrote.
