Karachi: Pacer Umar Gul has decided to retire from all forms of cricket after the conclusion of the National T20 Cup, scheduled to take place from September 30 to October 18, ARY Sports reported.
The upcoming T20 event will be his last and now has aimed to pursue a career in cricket coaching. He is part of Balochistan’s first XI and is expected to play the role of a player-cum- mentor.
The 36-year-old represented Pakistan in 47 Tests, 130 ODIs, and 85 T20Is and picked 427 wickets across formats.
It must be noted that Umar is part of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Cricket Committee and was under immense criticism over his inclusion in the committee despite playing in the domestic cricket.
