New Zealand Star Fears End Of Career About T20 World Cup Squad Snub
Things are not looking bright for one Kiwi star ahead of the T20 World Cup. If being dropped from the squad for the tournament wasn't bad enough, the player could be done with his national team career as well. Coach Gary Stead also added that he spoke to the star player to give him an update on where he stands. The player is none other than opening New Zealand batsman Colin Munro.
The 34-year-old batsman has seen his ups and downs in recent times. He has not been performing as well as he would have wanted recently. With that being said, he was in and out of the team at times and eventually has been dropped from the T20 World Cup squad.
Munro was not having the best of times recently. He needed his level of performance to go up with some consistency right through this year. That was essential for him to be picked in that squad. However, with that not being the case, the player has accepted his fate, as it would seem now.
He posted on his Instagram Stories in disappointment, after the squad was named. The post said, "Extremely gutted to miss out on this, was definitely a goal of mine that I wanted to tick off. Looks like I might have played my last game for [the Blackcaps] not by choice."
Well, no player is happy after being dropped from the national team. His age could be a major factor in him considering retirement from the national side. There could be a potential return on the cards too. Only if he decides to fight for a return, though it seems very tough at this point in time. Keeping that in mind, it will be interesting to see if Munro can earn a spot for New Zealand in any format of the game or will he be forgotten sooner rather than later?
