Pakistan middle order batsman announced retirement

Pakistan’s middle order batsman, Asad Shafiq announced his retirement from the international circuit. He played his last match against England on 21st August 2020 whereas he made his debut on 21st June 2010 against Bangladesh. 

His debut was in the Asia Cup. In his 10 year career he scored 12 hundreds and 36 half centuries in the international level. He has scored over 4000 runs in the test but due to his inconsistency with the bat he was not able to fix his position in the team. 

In his retirement he said, “I am not feeling the same excitement and passion playing cricket and neither do I have the same fitness levels required for international cricket. Which is why I have decided to say goodbye to all cricket. After being dropped in 2020 I kept on playing domestic cricket for three years in the hope of getting another crack at the Pakistan team. 

But before the start of the season I had decided this would be my last season because I felt that closing in on 38 years of age this was time to retire instead of people telling me to step down.”
