Karachi: Fast bowler Wahab Riaz, who was ruled out of the central contract of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has said that he had decided to retire from this traditional format due to his constant neglect from Test cricket. It is believed that Wahab did not get a place in the central contract due to leaving Test cricket, but this left-arm fast bowler said that he was not selected in Pakistan's Test team after October 2018 which was the main reason for retiring from this format. .
Actually, during a conversation with a cricket website, Wahab said, 'I played a Test match in October 2017 and after that I got the next opportunity on the flat pitch against Australia in October, just a year after that and after that I got from the team Been thrown out. ' The fast bowler, who played 27 Tests, 89 ODIs and 31 T20 internationals for Pakistan, said, "If I can't play, then this format is not made for me." I started focusing on limited overs cricket because I thought it would be better to focus on T20 and ODI.
Significantly, Wahab and another fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who made their 2010 debut in Test cricket, were not given a place in their new central contract by the PCB last month. This was considered the main reason for both of them retiring from Test cricket. Wahab said, 'I am fit and bowling well. I want to represent Pakistan in limited overs cricket. It is in the hands of the Cricket Board not to take a central contract.
