Australian cricketer Daniel Christian’s announced that he will be retiring from Sydney Sixers after the current season of the country’s domestic Twenty20 cricket competition, the Big Bash League.

“Yesterday at training I told my Sydney Sixers teammates that I’ll be retiring from playing at the end of the BBL season. Sydney Smash tonight, followed by our last round game against the Hurricanes, and then the finals,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Hopefully we can go all the way again this season, but regardless, it’s been a great run. I’ve achieved things and made some memories that I could have only dreamt of as a kid,” he said.

“What I didn’t expect to learn as a kid though, is how many people I was going to come in contact with that have had an influence on my career and ended up becoming lifelong friends. I’m looking forward to now having the time to catch up with you all and not having to use the excuse: ‘Sorry, I’ve got cricket’,” he went on adding. “I’ll reserve some thank you’s for after my last game (whenever that may be), but in the meantime, go the Sixers!”
