Shaun Tait retires from ODI’s to focus on Twenty20 cricket

Shaun Tait - Always something to say and erratically brilliant.

Australia fast bowler Shaun Tait is retiring from one-day cricket to focus on the Twenty20 form of the game.

The 28-year-old, who was part of Australia’s failed Cricket World Cup campaign, is also quitting domestic 50 over cricket.

Tait who had already retired from Test Cricket in 2008 says “In reality, playing all year round for Australia and South Australia is not allowing my body to stand up as I would like and I do not want to be forced into retirement through career-ending injuries.”

There is still going to be a heavy work load for Tait though with Twenty20 playing commitments for Australia, South Australian Redbacks, Surrey and the Rajasthan Royals.

Shaun says “Twenty20 cricket allows me to manage my body to a level where I feel I can continue to contribute to the game for some time yet.”

Newswarped believes he might find consolation from the rigours of Twenty20 play when he glances at his bank balance from time to time.
