Kyle Coetzer has announced his retirement from Twenty20 International cricket

Former Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer has announced his retirement from Twenty20 Internationals on Thursday, July 21st. The Scottish cricketer resigned as captain last month and has now opted to retire from T20I cricket entirely ahead of the T20I series against New Zealand.

Coetzer had a terrible run with the bat in last year’s T20 World Cup in the UAE. He was averaging 12 and had a strike rate of 102.43. Michael Jones has replaced the veteran cricketer in the T20I team to face New Zealand next week. The batsman has returned to Scotland after a successful stay with Durham in the recently finished T20 Blast when he averaged 26.58 with a strike rate of 140.52.

The veteran cricketer thanked the fans for their support and stated that representing his country in past World Cups brought him great joy. He also stated that the squad would benefit from the addition of a player who can contribute more significantly than him and that he will continue to assist the team in any manner he can.

Scotland has qualified for this year’s T20 World Cup, and the squad’s head coach has stated that while the players appreciate a prestigious team like New Zealand, they will not be afraid of the Kiwis and would love to see home fans cheering the team on in the upcoming matches against the Black Caps.
