LAHORE (City News) – Mohammad Irfan Junior has bid farewell to cricket after getting disheartened following selection criteria of the upcoming National T20 Cup.
Sources privy to the matter have revealed that the 25-year-old right-arm fast bowler has formally informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) about his decision.
Mohammad Irfan Jr said he deserved a place in the first XI on the basis of his performance but he was selected in the second XI as selectors picked their favorite players.
It has been learnt that Mohammad Irfan Jr had requested Abdul Rehman – the Southern Punjab coach – for a place in the first XI but he did not accept it. The bowler said he will not play any form cricket from now onwards but will consider playing if got a chance in the Pakistan Super League.
I will not beg the PCB for help and will earn my livelihood by farming and a sports shop, Mohammad Irfan Jr said.
