England Men’s all-rounder Ben Stokes has announced that he will retire from one-day international cricket following Tuesday’s Royal London International against South Africa.
Stokes has played 104 ODI matches and is set to end his international career in the format on his home ground at the Seat Unique Riverside.
As hard as a decision as this was to come to, it’s not as hard dealing with the fact I can’t give my teammates 100% of myself in this format anymore. The England shirt deserves nothing less from anyone who wears it: Ben Stokes
The 31-year-old’s ODI career will forever be remembered for his Player-of-the-Match performance in the 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup final at Lord’s.
