The Netherlands team’s important player, Ryan Ten Doeschate had recently announced his retirement from all forms of cricket at the end of this year (2021). Ryan has been the all-rounder of Netherlands and Essex. This news came as a shocker since he was part of the upcoming T20 World cup squad of the Netherlands. The game will be commencing on October 17th at UAE and Oman.
Ryan Ten Doeschate has taken a drastic decision of retiring from International cricket that has given heart attacks to many fans and cricket critics. Since the much-awaited T20 World cup is round the corner, the Netherlands team is pretty confused about it. After seeing Ryan in excellent form as he played for Essex recently, it is hard to digest this sudden change.
During the last 2011 World Cup tournament, this all-rounder has scored 1541 runs with a remarkable average of 67. On the other hand, he has bagged 55 wickets under his pocket as a right arm medium pacer. Between August 2008 and November 2019, he has played 22 T20Is and has picked up 13 wickets and scored 533 runs.
During his time with the Club, he has become quite close with the Essex team and has been grateful for the same. He even said that he has found a home getting away from home.
“From the bottom of my heart, I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved with Essex during my time at the Club. It’s been the greatest professional experience to grow in this environment to watch the organization and the individual within it evolve and become something that I am extremely proud to have been part of,” Ryan said in the official statement from Essex. “We’ve shared some remarkable times but for me, the biggest achievement has been making a home away from home.”
Netherlands is part of Group A for the Qualifiers for the upcoming T20 World Cup game alongside Sri Lanka, Ireland and Namibia. Netherlands will lock horns with Ireland in Dubai for their first campaign on October 18th.
