Kohli's heartfelt tribute for Stokes after England all-rounder's ODI retirement
England's Test captain and star all-rounder Ben Stokes announced his retirement from ODI cricket, stating that he intends to focus on the red-ball format and T20s.
Former India captain Virat Kohli stated that Ben Stokes is “the most competitive bloke" he has “ever played against” as he paid tribute to the England all-rounder who announced his retirement from ODI cricket on Sunday. England's Test captain Stokes said in a statement, which he posted on his social media handles, that his body is unable to sustain playing all three formats and he now intends to give it his all in red ball cricket and T20s.
Kohli replied to Stokes' retirement announcement on Instagram. “You’re the most competitive bloke I’ve ever played against. Respect,” said the 33-year-old. Stokes said in the statement that England's game on Tuesday against South Africa will be his last game in the 50-over format.
“I will play my last game for England in ODI cricket on Tuesday in Durham. I have decided to retire from this format. This has been an incredibly tough decision to make. I have loved every minute of playing with my mates for England. We have had an incredible journey on the way,” Stokes wrote in the post.
“As hard as a decision as this was to come to, it’s not as hard dealing with the fact I can’t give my teammates 100 per cent of myself in this format anymore. The England shirt deserves nothing less from anyone who wears it," read his statement.
