Mohammad Hafeez has announced his retirement from international cricket but will be available for T20 leagues across the globe. The 41-year old played for 18 years, with his international debut coming against Zimbabwe in 2003. His last game ended in Pakistan’s defeat against Australia in the ICC T20 World Cup semi-final.

He will represent Lahore Qalandars in the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Hafeez played 55 Tests, 218 ODIs and 119 T20Is while scoring 12,780 across formats. He won the 32 Player-of-the-Match awards, the fourth-highest among the players of his country, with Shahid Afridi (43), Wasim Akram (39) and Inzamam-ul-Haq (33) ahead of him. In addition, he also won the nine Player of the Series awards, joint-second with legend Imran Khan, Inzamam and Waqar Younis.

Hafeez is expected to make an official announcement. The veteran had retired from Test cricket in December 2018, while the selectors decided to move on from him in ODIs after the World Cup in 2019.
