Hong Kong wicket-keeper Chris Carter has announced his retirement from international cricket in order to pursue a career as a pilot.21-year-old Carter was last seen in action for Hong Kong in the Asia Cup 2018 in the United Arab Emirates, where he scored 5 runs from two outings.Carter has decided to move to Australia, where he grew up, in order to attend flight school.”I already put my studies on hold before but I think it’s time to do what I’ve always wanted to do, and that is to become a pilot,” Carter, who was born in Hong Kong but grew up in Perth, told South China Morning Post.”It is difficult to be a cricketer in Hong Kong given the lack of funding. People within CHK (Cricket Hong Kong) work so hard to try and allow us to play on a full-time basis.”The likes of Mark Wright and Simon Cook really do their best, but they are not supported well enough by the government or the ICC,” Carter added.Carter made his debut for Hong Kong in 2015 and played 11 one-day internationals for the team scoring 114 runs with a highest score of 43. He also featured in 10 T20Is and five first-class matches.Carter played his final game against India in their Asia Cup opener on September 18 in which he scored 3 runs as Hong Kong came agonisingly close to causing a major upset in this edition of the tournament.India had posted 285 for 7 on the board batting first and managed to stop Hong Kong just 26 runs short of the target thanks to their outstanding opening stand of 174 runs between Nizakat Khan (92) and captain Anshuman Rath (73). India went on the lift their 7th Asia Cup title after beating Bangladesh in the final last Friday.advertisementHong Kong’s first loss against Pakistan meant that they crashed out of the competition in the group stage following the defeat against India.Carter left for Adelaide where he will train for 55 weeks in his hopes of becoming a second officer with Cathay Pacific.”It is difficult for other members of the Hong Kong team, some of them who do not really have qualifications,” he said.Carter however, plans to return to Hong Kong in the future and make himself available for senior selection but his work would take priority.(With agency inputs)
Los Angeles: “Supergirl” co-stars Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood have tied the knot. The couple got married at an intimate wedding ceremony on Sunday in Ojai, California. “It was a beautiful setting for a wedding, very peaceful and quiet. The vows were brief and lasted about 15 minutes. There was lots of cheering and applause as it ended,” a source told E! News. The couple said ‘I do’ six months after they announced their engagement on Instagram. Benoist met Wood on the set of the CW series in which she plays the titular hero, and he joined the cast as her on-screen love interest Mon-El in 2016. She was previously married to “Glee” co-star Blake Jenner.
