“West Indies All-Rounder Confirms No Surprise Comeback for T20 World Cup”

In-form all-rounder Sunil Narine has firmly ruled out any possibility of reversing his decision to retire from international cricket, dismissing speculation of a shock return for the West Indies at this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Narine retired from international cricket toward the end of last year. Despite his outstanding performances in the ongoing Indian Premier League season with the Kolkata Knight Riders, where he has amassed 286 runs at an average exceeding 40 and claimed nine wickets with his off-spin, he remains resolute in his retirement decision.

West Indies T20I captain Rovman Powell had expressed his desire to coax Narine out of retirement for the T20 World Cup, which the Caribbean side will co-host with the USA in June. However, Narine clarified his stance on social media, indicating that he is at peace with his decision to retire.

In his statement, Narine expressed gratitude for the support and encouragement he has received but emphasized that he has made peace with his retirement decision. He conveyed his intention to support the team and the players who will represent the West Indies in the T20 World Cup, acknowledging their hard work and deserving opportunity to showcase their skills.

The West Indies are set to kick off their T20 World Cup campaign in Guyana against Papua New Guinea on June 2, followed by matches against Uganda, New Zealand, and Afghanistan in Group C.
