Mohammad Hafeez announces retirement from Test cricket

Posted On / /

Struggling Pakistan opener Mohammad Hafeez on Tuesday announced that he will retire from Test cricket after the ongoing third and final match against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi.

The 38-year-old managed to score just 66 runs in the last seven innings after scoring a hundred against Australia in Dubai last month following his recall to the longest format.

The current Test is Hafeez’s 55th appearance in the five-day format for Pakistan. In a Test career spanning 15 years, Hafeez has scored in excess of 3500 runs in Tests till date, with 10 hundreds and 12 half-centuries. He made his Test debut against Bangladesh in Karachi in 2003.

“I feel time is up,” said Hafeez. “I am announcing my retirement and feel happy that I worked hard in my career.”
