Imad, who played 55 ODIs and 66 T20Is for Pakistan announced his retirement in a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday. He last represented Pakistan in April this year in a T20I against New Zealand in Rawalpindi.

“In recent days I have been doing a lot of thinking about my international career and I have come to the conclusion that now is the right time for me to announce my retirement from international cricket,” Imad said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

“I would like to thank the PCB for all their support over the years – it has truly been an honour to represent Pakistan.”

“Each of my 121 appearances across the ODI and T201 formats was a dream come true. It’s an exciting time for Pakistan cricket going forwards with new coaches and leadership incoming. I wish all involved every success and I look forward to watching the team excel,” the post said.

“Thank you to the Pakistan fans for always supporting me with such passion. A final thank you to my family and friends who have been so important in helping me achieve at the highest level. I now look forward to focussing on the next stage of my playing career away from the international stage,” the post said.
