According to reports by a local news channel, following Amir’s decision, Wahab Riaz has also decided to retire from Test cricket. The 34-year-old left-arm fast bowler, who is currently playing the Global T20 League in Canada is expected to formally announce the decision upon his return to Pakistan. Wahab’s decision, like Mohammad Amir, seems to be taken to prolong his limited-overs career.
Pakistan’s ace bowler, Mohammad Amir has announced his retirement from Test cricket with immediate effect. The bowler however, reaffirmed his commitment to playing white ball cricket for Pakistan. The 27-year-old cricketer shared that he was considering retirement from the format “for some time”, adding that it “has not been an easy decision to make”.
