“I want to express my gratitude to my family, who have supported me throughout my cricket journey, from the very beginning until now,” stated the former captain.

“I also want to express my gratitude to the Pakistan Cricket Board for giving me the opportunity to show off my abilities and for believing in me.

Finally, I want to express my gratitude to my fellow teammates, who I now consider family. I will always treasure the friendship we had, both on and off the field.
