Zimbabwe all-rounder Sean Williams retires from T20Is

Zimbabwe all-rounder Sean Williams has decided to retire from T20I format cricket after taking part in the 5-match series against Najmul Hossain Shanto’s Bangladesh.

Sean Williams made his international T20 retirement on 28 November 2006 against Bangladesh.

Sean Williams’ last T20I series went against his team’s favour as they lost the 5-match T20I series by 4-1 against Bangladesh. Though he withdrew himself from the shortest format of the game he will continue to represent the country in ODIs and Tests.

The 37-year-old will continue representing the national team in ODIs and Tests. A Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) official, working with the Zimbabwean team, confirmed the development around Williams.

“He (Williams) decided to retire from T20l and informed about his decision to his teammates following the game,” a Bangladesh Cricket Board official working with Team Zimbabwe was quoted by a sports website.

In September 2019, Williams captained Zimbabwe for the first time, in the opening Twenty20 International (T20I) match of the 2019–20 Singapore Tri-Nation Series, against Nepal.

In 81 T20Is, Williams scored 1691 runs at an average of 23.48 and a strike-rate of 126.38 with 11 half-centuries and a top score of 66 to his name and also bagged 48 wickets at an economy of 6.94.
