Mohammad Hafeez announces retirement in Test format

Pakistan all-rounder and middle order batsman Mohammad Hafeez has made it official that he is retiring from Test cricket.

The 38-year-old all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez’s career stretched over 15 years. He had an average of over 38 in 55-Test series. Hafeez made the decision towards the end of second test match against New Zealand.

In a test series against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi he scored 20, 10 and 9 in three innings. The ongoing match in Abu Dhabi against the New Zealand will be cricketer’s last match.

Hafeez was dismissed by Trent Boult because he registered a four-ball duck in the second over of Pakistan innings.

He said that it was not because of his batting that he decided to retire. He talked to media saying, “To be honest, it was a tough decision and I was thinking about it for the last couple of weeks.”
