Webb joined the Indian team in 2019 after Shankar Basu’s stint ended following the ODI World Cup, PTI reported from New Delhi.
“In saying this, I have recently informed the BCCI that I will not be seeking an extension of my contract following the t20 world cup,” Webb wrote on his Instagram page with details of his reason to quit the high profile job after two years.
Webb said that he has decided to put his family first with stringent health protocols in place for New Zealand citizens wanting to enter the country.
“This has not been an easy decision but ultimately I must put my family first. The current COVID restrictions for New Zealand citizens wanting to enter NZ is the primary reason,” Webb added.
Webb, who’s from New Zealand, mentioned that the COVID-19 restrictions in the country are the primary reason to take this decision. He also added that leaving the family for a stint of 5-8 months at a time also made it tough for him to continue after the T20 World Cup.
He spoke about the achievements of the Indian team and how it had been a privilege to be in that dressing room.
“For the past 2+ years, I have had the privilege and honor of representing the India and Indian cricket team. We have achieved and grown a lot as a team during this time. As a team we created history, we won matches and we lost matches.
“But how we continually responded and adapted in the face of many challenges along with everyone’s willingness to compete every single day are things that make this team special.”
