Vitality Blast 2022: All time leading run scorer in the T20 Blast History, Luke Wright Stepped Down as Sussex T20 Captain Due to Frustration
English cricketer Luke Wright has stepped down as captain of the English county team Sussex’s T20 team. He captained Sussex for seven consecutive seasons. The all-rounder finally decided to step down due to frustration.
Under Wright’s leadership, Sussex established a strong position among England’s top T20 teams. But they have not yet been able to turn the record of victory and defeat into a title. The county lost to defending champions Kent in the semifinals last season.
Wright was naturally disappointed that he could not win any title despite being captain for so long. Sussex have left Chris Jordan and Phil Salt, two of the team’s top players. He has removed himself for all this.
“I didn’t think we had to see anything like that because we can’t always beat our best players,” Wright said. The recruitment process needs to be stronger. It’s not a good thing at the moment (excluding players). ‘
“It is a great honor to be the captain of Sussex. I love the club very much. But I think this is the right time to resign. I will do my best to help Sussex, as I have been doing for so many years. ‘
Sussex, of course, sees Luke Wright’s departure as normal. Rob Andrew, Sussex chief executive, said: “We respect Luke’s decision to step down as captain. We will work with him to focus on his successor and the future.
Wright is not leaving the team even after leaving the captaincy. He has a contract with Sussex until 2023. For now, the English cricketer will only play for the county team.
