Pakistan senior cricketer Mohammad Hafeez has again lashed out at the persons who are repeatedly asking him to announce retirement from International cricket.
Mohammad Hafeez while talking to media on Monday through video conference once again made it clear that it is his decision and choice when to retire.
“I’m not playing cricket to fulfill anyone’s desire and will not stop playing cricket based on someone’s personal suggestions. I’ve been justifying my selection for the last 17-18 years with performances and will try to continue doing it. In short, it’s my career, my choice,” said Hafeez.
Hafeez also stated that his aim is still to play the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia, which is in uncertainty due to COVID-19 tensions.
“I decided to retire after playing the T20 World Cup, if this tournament postpones or have some changes in its schedule, I will maintain myself to play the tournament,” he added.
Hafeez requested the International Cricket Council (ICC) to review bowling angle regulations.
“Beauty of the game has disappeared due to some regulations. The excitement between the ball and bat has been limited. In order to protect and modernize this game, some changes must be considered,” he added.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced a 29-player squad for three Tests and three T20Is against England. The Pakistan team will leave for a ‘bio-secure’ England tour on June 28 via a chartered plane.
