Wahab Riaz Retires from the International Cricket

Pakistani bowler Wahab Riaz announces retirement from int’l cricket.

I’m leaving the international field. I’ve made the decision to retires from the world of international cricket after an amazing adventure. Big thanks to PCB, my family, my teammates, my coaches, my mentors, the fans, and everyone else who helped me out, added Wahab Riaz.

The 38-year-old will continue to compete in international T20 leagues. There are “exciting times ahead in the world of franchise cricket!” he said.

2008 saw Riaz make his ODI and T20I debuts, while 2010 saw him make his Test debut.

Over the course of his career, the Lahore native participated in 36 T20Is, 91 ODIs, and 27 Tests for Pakistan. In international cricket, he claimed more than 200 wickets.

In his Test debut against England at The Oval in 2010, Riaz recorded 5 for 63 to become the ninth Pakistani bowler to take five wickets on debut.

His finest ODI performance came against India in the World Cup semi-final in Mohali, where he took 5 for 46. His victims included MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, and Yuvraj Singh.

In the 2015 World Cup match in Adelaide, Riaz bowled one of the most memorable periods in Pakistan cricket history when he misled Australia’s Shane Watson with his pace and bounce.

In a T20I encounter against New Zealand in Hamilton in December 2020, the pacer played his final match for his country.
