England all-rounder David Willey has announced he will retire from international cricket at the end of the current ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

Willey, 33, made his debut for England back in 2015 and has played 70 ODIs and 43 IT20s.

Willey said: “I never wanted this day to come. From a young boy, I’ve only ever dreamed of playing cricket for England.

“With careful consideration, it is with great regret that I feel the time has come for me to retire from all formats of international cricket at the end of the World Cup.

“I have worn the shirt with immense pride and given my absolute all to the badge on my chest.

“I’m sure everybody who knows me does not doubt that, whatever my involvement in the remainder of this campaign, I will give my everything and more. That’s the only way I know.

Rob Key, MD of England Men’s Cricket, said: “Playing over 100 white-ball games for your country is a massive achievement and something David can be immensely proud of.

“He has given everything he has to England, every time he’s taken to the field, and I’d like to thank him for all that he’s done over many years. I wish him all the very best for the future.”
