LAHORE: Fast Bowler Wahab Riaz has finally say good bye to all type of red ball cricket as he withdraws from the upcoming Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the first-class competition.
According to details Wahab Riaz who last played first-class cricket in November 2018, has conveyed his decision to the Pakistan Cricket Board while confirming that he has withdrawn from the upcoming Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the first-class competition. “After reviewing my past couple of years’ performances in red-ball cricket and the upcoming limited overs cricket, I have decided to take time off from first-class cricket. During this period, I will like to focus on 50-over and 20-over cricket, and continue to access my fitness for the longer version of the game,” Riaz said.
“At a stage I feel I cannot only return but also perform with the red-ball, I would make myself available. The PCB had been trying to convince me to pursue my career with red-ball, but today I met them to convey my decision. I am grateful for their understanding and support,” the pacer added.
