Pakistan pacer announced retirement from Red-ball format!
Pakistan left-arm pacer Usman Shinwari announced retirement to increasing his playing span. Earlier today, on 16th Nov. Tuesday, Usman took it to Twitter and wrote about his Doctors and Physios advice in the favour of retirement.
The 27-year old Shinwari has 48-International wickets and has represented Pakistan in one Test match. He has played 33 matches and has also performed in 17 ODIs and 16 T20 Internationals. His only Test match came against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi in December 2019.
