Hafeez to retire after T20 World Cup this year
Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has almost reached to the end of his career. Former Pakistan captain has had to fight to find a place in the national team since the last ODI World Cup in 2019. The controversy has been going on since when the 39-year-old star will retire.
But this time, Hafeez confirmed that he will be holding the bat-pad pair after the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup. The schedule for the T20 World Cup in Australia starts in this October. However, the tournament is likely to be postponed due to coronavirus terror.
In an interview, Hafeez expressed his desire for his future, saying he would retire from international cricket after helping the country in the upcoming T20 World Cup. The Pakistani all-rounder said,
“After the T20 World Cup, I have decided to quit international cricket. But I will play in the T20 leagues.”
Hafeez has already retired from Test cricket and is playing white ball cricket. In response to the question of what to do after retirement, he added, “I can come to coaching. I don’t know, but I’ll make up my mind when the time comes.”
The former Pakistan T20 captain has played 55 Tests, 218 ODIs and 91 T20 matches at the international arena.
