HEADLINE: Legends League duties force Jason Mohammed's Windies retirement 2023-11-13 15:06:22 

Trinidad and Tobago A-List veteran batsman Jason Mohammed says his upcoming commitments with the Legends League Cricket T20 tournament meant he had to retire from international cricket and make the announcement “as soon as possible.”

Mohammed, 37, announced his retirement from West Indies cricket before helping the TT Red Force capture the CG United Super50 title, at the Brian Lara Academy in Tarouba on Saturday night.

“It was a tough decision,” he told media after the Red Force’s seven-wicket win over the Leeward Islands Hurricanes, with which the team won their 14th Super50 tournament.

“I got into the Legends League in India, hence the reason why I had to make my announcement as soon as possible. That was the reason for it being announced before the match,” he explained.

LOL @ “tough decision”

I eh know who JMo think he foolin

If he truly harbored thoughts/hopes of once again playing for WI at this stage of his career, likely he only fooling himself.

JMo….lissen me. You were retired from WI cricket a long time ago. Never to return. With justification. You simply were not good enough

No harm in that and in that you’re by no means alone. You were and remain a great servant to and of T&T cricket and for that we thank you.

Now ketty yuh delusional self to de Legends league and enjoy what remains of your career cool

Good servant of TT cricket but I really hope that he retires from national duties as well. TT has to start discovering new talent now in red ball cricket and white ball cricket. Its good-ish players were able to hang on for longer than those from other islands but TT cannot field a team of mid thirty something year olds in next year FC. While Michael, Cariah, Ottley and a couple others still have a little fire in the belly, they need to bring on some young uns or TT will be in the position of Jamaica within a year or two
