Made memories I could only dream of: Dan Christian pens emotional note
"Yesterday at training I told my Sydney Sixers teammates that I'll be retiring from playing at the end of the BBL season," the 39-year-old wrote in an emotional post titled 'Some News' with a smiley emoji, on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
In the post, Christian stated how he had a dream run throughout his career and the way in which enjoyed himself throughout. He said that he would love to get another title under his belt before signing off, however, even if does not, he's happy with how things have turned and he will forever support the Sixers.
“Hopefully we can go all the way again this season, but regardless it’s been a great run. I’ve achieved things and made some memories that I could have only dreamt of as a kid. What I didn’t expect to learn as a kid though is how many people I was going to come in contact with that have had an influence on my career and ended up becoming lifelong friends. I’m looking forward to now having the time to catch up with you all and not having to use the excuse ‘sorry, I’ve got cricket’," the post read.
