“I had my discussions with whoever I needed to quite a while ago, I haven’t spoken to CSA since then. At the end of the day, how they treated Faf (du Plessis), Immi (Imran Tahir) or me is something they’ve to deal with, there is no way I can comment. I wasn’t a part of the negotiations, I haven’t been spoken to for a year, maybe longer than a year,” said Morris.

“So can’t really comment on what’s happening, a few stories are coming out, I know which one I can believe. It’s a touchy subject, there are so many different angles to it,” he stated.

Morris already stated in October that his tenure with the SA was all but finished. According to the experienced, Cricket South Africa did not approach him for a longer duration.

Morris last appeared for South Africa in a World Cup match versus Australia at Old Trafford in Manchester in 2019.
