BJ Watling retires – ‘I would like to finish on a massive high with a big tour’



Watling looks back at some of the memorable moments of his career, what he will miss the most, and more

Soon after announcing his retirement from all forms of cricket, New Zealand wicketkeeper-batter BJ Watling spoke to the media in Lincoln and looked back at some of his most memorable series, what he would miss the most, and more.

What’s the reason for your retirement and what will you miss the most?
There’s a few factors. I think it’s the right time for me to leave the game. I’m thoroughly looking forward to the three huge Test matches to finish off. It should be exciting. Toiling away for five days, in harsh conditions sometimes…Sitting back, looking around the group and having beer with the team. That’ll certainly be the times I miss the most.

On the upcoming England tour…
I think it’s exciting that we’ve got two Tests against England to start with. It’s a great place to play cricket there, [a] very tough opposition. It’ll be nice to beat them on home soil. And to obviously finish with a Test final. It’s going to be a pretty special tour. I’m looking forward to it still and there’s a lot of cricket to be played.
