Corey Anderson quits New Zealand Cricket to play USA Cricket
“It’s been a huge honor and (I am) extremely proud to represent New Zealand,”
“It hasn’t been an easy decision. I asked myself several questions. What do I want to do now or what do I want to achieve in the next two years, five years, 10 years? As you get older you think about life a little bit more broadly as well.” said Corey Anderson.
“I would have loved to have achieved and played more but just is what it is sometimes, and different opportunities arise and send you in a direction you never thought would be a possibility. Very appreciative for everything that NZC has done for me.” added the player.
