Melbourne. The legendary Australian cricketer, who created a stir in international cricket with her brilliant captaincy and batting, surprised everyone with her sudden demise. Australia's six-time World Cup-winning former cricket captain Meg Lanning has revealed that she retired from the game at the age of 31 due to bouts of depression and weight loss due to excessive exercise and poor eating.

Lanning took a six-month break for mental health after winning gold at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. He retired from the game after Ashes 2023 but did not give any reason. He said in 'The Howie Games' podcast, “Everyone told me that something was not going right but I did not accept it. I was in no condition to play cricket. A series like the Ashes requires a lot of mental and physical commitment.

She said that there came a time when she lost her appetite and after running 90 kilometers a week, she used to eat food only twice, due to which she lost a lot of weight. She said, “I used to eat less and exercise more.” My weight went from 64 kg to 57 kg. This affected my concentration. I didn't want to see other people. She was also cut off from her family and friends. Then I felt that this should be stopped now.

Lanning said, “I would just put earphones in my ears and go running.” She didn't even keep her phone with her. Would take Apple Watch for music. Due to this no one is able to contact me. Gradually this became my habit. I couldn't sleep at night, which made me angry at myself, although all these things did not affect my game.
