Fast-bowler Wahab Riaz confirmed that he has decided to take an indefinite break from red-ball cricket.

He also announced to withdraw from the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

Wahab Riaz said: “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.”

Wahab said that 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.

“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,” he said.

Wahab Riaz is a Pakistani cricketer. He is a left-arm fast bowler and a right-hand batsman. He frequently bowls at speeds of around 90 mph and has reached 96 miles per hour.

His all-round performance in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 earned him worldwide recognition.
