Steven Finn Announces Retirement From All Forms Of Cricket, Sent An Emotional Note For His Good Bye

Former England fast bowler Steven Finn officially announced his retirement from all cricket formats on August 14 at the age of 34. Fighting with a persistent knee injury, Finn enjoyed a successful career which lasted over a decade and now he had chosen to exit the game.

From 2010 to 2017, while representing England, Steven Finn established himself and got 254 wickets across different formats. His notable achievements not only endeared him to fans but also secured him a significant spot in England’s cricketing history.

Finn played all formats of cricket for England, but his Test performance will be remembered for time. He has picked 36 matches and 125 wickets.

“While announcing his retirement, Finn talked to the BBC and said,”I have been fighting a battle with my body for the last 12 months and have admitted defeat to it.”

“I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to play cricket as my vocation since I made my debut for Middlesex in 2005. The journey hasn’t always been smooth, but I have loved it nonetheless.

“To have played 125 games for England, including 36 Tests, far surpassed what I dreamed of. I want to thank Sussex Cricket for their support over the last 12 months especially and for welcoming me wholeheartedly into the club at the beginning of last.”

“It really is a great place to play cricket and I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to play more of a part on the field since joining the club.

“I retire with some amazing memories of England, Middlesex and Sussex, shared with fantastic people. Those will live with me forever.”
