Colin Munro, who is busy playing in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 for Trinbago Knight Riders wants to focus on T20s before deciding on his future afterwards. He has scored three T20 centuries in international cricket which is the second most by any batsman alongside Glenn Maxwell after Rohit Sharma, who has recorded four to his name.
The New Zealand opener can take apart any opposition and is a threat for them, especially in the shortest format. But after a string of failures at the 2019 World Cup where he could score only 125 in six matches saw him miss out on a central contract and thereby his international future is doubtful and he is fighting for a spot in ODI team.

Colin Munro Missed Out On NZ Contract But Will Reassess Himself After 2 Years Or So By Playing Maximum Possible T20s
Since he is 33 — he will try to play as much T20s as possible in the next two years or so and then will wait to see how the things shape up at the end of the year. Then he will reassess his goals whether he will continue or spend the time by looking after himself and family by moving forward from cricket.
“I missed out on a contract for New Zealand this year. It sort of shows me that they chose other players ahead of me in one day cricket and that’s acceptable. It’s time for me now to also start looking after myself and my family and what the best decision that is moving forward,” Munro was quoted as saying by cricket.com.
“I am 33, probably got another two years of good cricket in me and then I can reassess my goals after that. So try to play as much T20 cricket as I can over the next little while and see where that puts me on at the end of next year,” Munro added.
He has featured for Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals in Indian Premier League, Trinbago Knight Riders in Caribbean Premier League, Sydney Sixers in Big Bash League, Karachi Kings and Islamabad United in Pakistan Premier League.
