Michael Holding, who has commented on many of cricket's most historic matches, has announced his retirement from commentary. As the commentator of Sky Sports, this year is going to be the end of the holding. This is what the legendary Caribbean cricketer said on Wednesday.
Holding wanted to say goodbye to the commentary in 2020. But he could not take his gratitude towards Sky Sports. But the former West Indies speedster said he could not continue.
"I wasn't really sure how long the commentary would last in 2020," he said of retirement. I don't think I can do this for very long at this age. I am 6 now. It's not 36, 47 or 58.
"In 2020, I told Sky Sports that I could not continue for more than a year," Holding said. And if cricket isn't too much this year, maybe I'll do something in 2021. In fact, I could not say goodbye to Sky Sports in 2020. Because, they did a lot for me
Holding has played 60 Tests and 102 ODIs for the West Indies. He has taken 391 wickets in international cricket. He retired from cricket in 1987.
