During his time playing, Munro achieved many great things. He scored a total of 3000 runs in 35 T20Is, 57 ODIs, and one Test match. He was especially good at T20Is, where he had a high strike rate of 156.44 and even scored three centuries. Munro was also part of the New Zealand team that reached the semifinals of the 2016 T20 World Cup.

Munro started his cricket journey back in 2006 when he played in the Under-19 World Cup for New Zealand. He later got the chance to play for the senior team in all three formats during the 2012-13 tour of South Africa. Even though he hasn’t played for the national team since 2020, Munro’s contributions to New Zealand cricket won’t be forgotten.

He decided to retire from international cricket after not being selected for the T20 World Cup squad. Even though Munro hasn’t been in the national team lately, he will always be remembered as a great opener and an important player for New Zealand cricket.

As Munro moves on to the next part of his cricket journey, both fans and teammates will wish him the best. His powerful batting and positive attitude will be missed in international games, but his impact on New Zealand cricket will always be remembered.
