South Africa all-rounder Chris Morris has revealed that he will not don the South Africa jersey again. Morris said he has not officially announced his retirement but Cricket South Africa (CSA) is aware that is is not interested in playing for the national team again.

"My playing days for South Africa are done. I am not one for announcing things and officially retiring and all of that. They know where I stand, I know where I stand, but my days are done for CSA, I think they know that," Chris Morris told Sportskeeda.

Morris further disclosed his future career plans and said he is focussed on playing T20 leagues across the globe. He, however, added that he will continue playing domestic cricket for South Africa.

"There hasn't been an official retirement because that's not how I am, but like I said, my international cricket days are done. I am focusing on domestic cricket and giving back to the team as much as I can. I was fortunate to represent South Africa in all 3 formats, I had an opportunity to represent my country. If you had asked me the same question a few months ago, I would have given you a longer answer but right now I am content with my life and my career," the all-rounder was quoted as saying.

Morris has played 4 Tests, 42 ODIs, and 23 T20Is, since making his debut in 2012. He has picked 94 wickets and scored 744 runs across formats.
