Lahore: Right-arm fast bowler Mohammad Irfan Jr has decided to not play the upcoming domestic season after being dismissed from the First XI squad despite a strong track record.
According to the cricketer, he was ignored from the First XI squad despite performing up to the mark in last season and offered a place in the Second XI squad which he declined.
“Despite performing with consistency, I was ignored from First XI squad which was disappointing for me,” said Irfan. “I have informed Southern Punjab’s management about my decision,” he added.
The 25-years-old cricketer now aims to do some other work in the field of sports. “Now, my aim is to work independently for sports in the future,” he concluded.
It must be noted here that Irfan has so far played 33 T20s and bagged 43 wickets at an average of 22.04. He also played in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and represented Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, and Quetta Gladiators.
Remember, earlier Salman Butt also questioned the selection policy for the upcoming National T20 Cup after being demoted to the Second XI squad. Butt had already refused to take part in the T20 event, scheduled to start from September 30 in Multan.
