Steven Finn Retirement: Steven Finn, the fast bowler for the England cricket team, has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. Steven Finn sustained a knee injury that kept him out for a while and caused him to retire at the age of 34. Finn played 126 appearances for England in all formats, taking 254 wickets at an average of 29.05.
“Today I am retiring from all forms of cricket with immediate effect,” read Finn’s statement. “I have been fighting a battle with my body for the last 12 months and have admitted defeat to it.
“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 season.
“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.
Steven Finn takes a hat-trick wicket in the final over during Australia vs England match.
“I retire with some amazing memories with England, Middlesex, and Sussex, shared with fantastic people. Those will live with me forever.
“Thank you to all the people who have followed and supported my career, especially my parents who allowed me to chase my dream when I was a youngster.
“Cricket has given me a lot and I hope to give back to the game in some capacity in the future. But, for now, I’ll enjoy watching on without wondering whether my body will be able to make it through another day’s cricket. Thank you.”
