Pakistan left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz decided to retire after the 2023 World Cup in India.

The 36-year-old revealed that he will bid farewell to international cricket in an interview with A Sports.

"Everyone has to say goodbye to cricket one day but I still feel, I have good two to three years left," said Wahab on A Sports.

Wahab believes fitness and performance is the key part of cricket as he doesn't want to be a burden just because of the name. However, he will continue to play in franchise leagues. 

"My aim is to play the 2023 World Cup and after that, I will say goodbye to cricket from Pakistan, I will look to play leagues all around the world," he added.

Wahab Riaz has been one of the gun pacers to emerge out of Pakistan. While the veteran has had form and injury problems throughout his career, he remains a big-match performer and can deliver long, incredible bowling spells tirelessly.

The left-arm pacer has represented Pakistan in 27 Tests, 91 ODIs and 36 T20Is. He has amassed 237 wickets to his name across formats.
