Chris Morris has claimed that his playing days for South Africa are done due to problems with the country’s cricket board.

Morris is one of the finest all-rounders in limited-overs cricket. He has made a fantastic name for himself at international level as well as in domestic leagues over the last few years.

A player as good as Morris is a blessing for any team to have, but Cricket South Africa have their own way of dealing with things. The 34-year-old hasn’t played for his country since July 2019, and he believes he won’t ever again.

So, what is Morris’ net worth? Here’s what we know…

Chris Morris: Net worth of the South African cricketer

According to CA Knowledge, Morris has an estimated net worth of $8.2 million (£6 million).

Most of his wealth has come through his cricketing career across the globe, but Morris is a smart businessman as well.

The outlet reveals that the 34-year-old, apart from owning multiple real-estate properties across the country, owns a luxury designer house in Galle, South Africa. He reportedly owns a few high-end cars as well.

Is Morris retiring from international cricket?

In an interview with Sportskeeda today, Morris revealed that his playing days for South Africa are now done due to problems with the cricket board. However, he has refused to officially announce his retirement.

He said: “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.

“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’m focussing on domestic cricket and giving back to the team as much as I can.

“I had my discussions with whoever I needed to quite a while ago, I haven’t spoken to CSA (Cricket South Africa) since then. I haven’t been spoken to for a year, maybe longer than a year.”
