Corey Anderson retires from New Zealand cricket, signs 3-year deal with Major League Cricket team in USA

The left-handed star all-rounder of New Zealand Corey Anderson has called off his International Journey with the Blackcaps. Anderson has signed a 3-year contract with big-league Cricket within the USA. He will be a part of the coaching ventures at the cricket academics that comes under MLC and his deal will include the likes and services of both major and minor League Cricket.

The 29-year-old made his T20I debut for brand spanking new Zealand within the year 2012 and has played as a mainstay across formats with the BlackCaps. One of his famous knocks came against the West Indies side as he struck a 36 ball 100 in 2014 which was known as the fasted ODI hundred at that time.

He is proud to have represented New Zealand at such a level. He 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 finished me,” Anderson told Cricbuzz.

Besides his 36-ball hundred, Corey Anderson was successful in IPL 2014 with the Mumbai Indians and also represented the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In order to observe the whole game, he decided to stay back. The result was in the form of super over. These were the views of Anderson on MLC T20 cricket.
