Mohammad Hafeez has announced retirement from international cricket on Monday.


Hafeez, aka Professor, said goodbye to international cricket with pride and satisfaction in a press conference held in Lahore earlier in the day.

“I started this journey 18 years ago, and I’m announcing my retirement today,” he said.

“I played for Pakistan due to the pride [I felt]. I didn’t have greed, I didn’t want to earn money, I only played for pride. I have no regrets of any kind. I am completely satisfied [with my career].”

“In fact, I have earned and accomplished more than I had initially envisaged and for that, I am thankful to all my fellow cricketers, captains, support staff, and the Pakistan Cricket Board who helped me out during my career,” Hafeez said.

“When you have a professional career as long as mine, you’re bound to have your share of highs and lows, and I was no different. Results apart, I can say with conviction that I had more highs as I had the privilege of playing with and against some of the finest exponents of the bat and the ball of my era,” Hafeez added.

The 41-year-old cricket star had earlier bid farewell to Test cricket in 2018.
