South African all-rounder Chris Morris stated that he is unlikely to play for the national team again and said he does not believe in officially announcing a retirement.

The 32-year-old also revealed that Cricket South Africa (CSA) is aware of his intentions of no longer featuring in international cricket for the Proteas.

“My playing days for South Africa are done. I am not one for announcing things and officially retiring and all of that. They know where I stand, I know where I stand, but my days are done for CSA, I think they know that,” Morris told sportskeeda.

"There hasn’t been an official retirement because that’s not how I am, but like I said, my international cricket days are done. I am focussing on domestic cricket and giving back to the team as much as I can. I was fortunate to represent South Africa in all 3 formats, I had an opportunity to represent my country," he added.

Morris played in the recently-concluded IPL for Rajasthan Royals, he has represented South Africa in 4 Tests, 42 ODIs and 23 T20Is. He last played for South Africa in July 2019 in the ODI World Cup in England.

"If you had asked me the same question a few months ago, I would have given you a longer answer but right now I am content with my life and my career," he added.
