South Africa all-rounder Chris Morris announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Tuesday.

In an Instagram post, the Proteas said, "Today I announce my retirement from all forms of cricket! Thanks to all who have played a part in my journey whether it be big or small…it’s been a fun ride!"

In the same post, he announced that he would be coaching the Titans, a cricket franchise in South Africa. "Delighted to be taking up a coaching role at @titanscricket".

Morris made his international debut in December 2012 against New Zealand. Morris featured in four Tests, 42 ODIs and 23 T20Is for South Africa, and played his last international match in 2019.

Morris played for Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings franchises in the IPL.

He turned out to be the biggest beneficiary among South African cricketers in the IPL when he was bought by Chennai Super Kings for a whopping Rs 3.32 crore in the 2013 players' auction.
