No U-turn: Sunil Narine claims ‘door is closed’ for making a return to West Indies for T20 World Cup

Kolkata Knight Riders ace all-rounder Sunil Narine shuts door on making U-turn in Internatioal cricket, no T20 World Cup for Narine

Sunil Narine has ruled out a return to the ICC T20 World Cup. The Caribbean all-rounder won’t come out of retirement to play for West Indies in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Despite his stunning form in the ongoing IPL 2024, Narine has claimed that the door is closed now for him to make a return.

Sunil Narine has been in sensational form in IPL 2024 so far. He went on to slam a brilliant unbeaten century against Rajasthan Royals the other day. In terms of bowling, he has bagged 9 wickets and is Kolkata Knight Rider‘s joint highest wicket getter so far in the tournament.

Narine took to social media to inform everyone about his decision. He has claimed that he has made peace with his international retirement and wants the players who have been performing well in recent times to perform well in the ICC tournament.

Narine refuses to make U-turn in International cricket

“I’m truly flattered and humbled that my performances recently have moved many people to publicly express their wish for me to come out of retirement and play in the upcoming T20 World Cup. I have made peace with that decision and whilst I never wish to disappoint, that door is now closed and I will be supporting the guys who take the field in June for West Indies,” Sunil Narine wrote

“Guys who have worked hard for the past few months and deserve to show our wonderful fans that they are capable of winning another title – I wish you all the best,” he concluded.

Narine last featured for West Indies back in 2019. However, it was last year in 2023 where he announced of his decision to retire for International cricket. And now despite the World Cup taking place in West Indies, the ace all-rounder has no chance of making a comeback.
