Said goodbye to ODI cricket
Stokes had decided to say goodbye to ODI cricket in the month of July this year. He took this decision citing workload. While retiring, England white ball coach Matthew Mott spoke to Stokes. He advised Stokes that you can withdraw your retirement anytime.
Talking to the reporter in Melbourne, Matthew Mott said, “When he told me about his retirement, I said that I will not support any of his decisions. I said there is no need for him to retire – he should not play ODI cricket for a while.
He further said, “I said that you can withdraw your retirement anytime. It was his decision. It will be a World Cup year and we won’t be playing much T20 cricket for a while but that decision will be up to them.”
Stokes is the captain of England in Test cricket. Stokes was given this responsibility after former captain Joe Root. Talking about Stokes’ Test performance, Matthew Mott said, “He is doing a good job in the captaincy of Test cricket. But when he comes back to white ball cricket, he is a very big player.
