David Willey to walk away from international cricket after the World Cup 2023 as he announces his retirement

The fast bowler of the England cricket team, David Willey, has announced his retirement from all the formats of international cricket. The 33-year-old confirmed that he will bid farewell to international cricket at the end of the World Cup 2023 campaign.
Willey announced his decision through a long social media post, saying that he feels the time has come for him to retire.
Willey said in his social media post that “I never wanted this day to come. As a young boy, I’ve only ever dreamed of playing cricket for England. So, with careful thought and consideration, it is with great regret that I feel the time has come for me to retire from all forms of international cricket at the end of the World Cup. I have worn the shirt with immense pride and given my absolute everything to the badge on my chest. I’ve been very lucky to be a part of such an incredible white-ball team with some of the best players in the world. I’ve made some special memories and great friends along the way and been through some very difficult times.”
The 33-year-old cricketer also thanked his family for their unwavering support and said that his decision had nothing to do with the performance of the team in the ongoing tournament.
