Former Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Hafeez’s wife Nazia Hafeez has said that she will miss her husband in Pakistan’s cricket team’s jersey.

Sharing a picture of her husband while getting ready for the press conference, she wrote: “I was so emotional in the morning when you were getting ready to go for press conference to announce your retirement.”

The star all-rounder’s wife said that she is proud of her man. She also said: “As your number one fan will miss you in Pakistan green top. love you.”



Hafeez announced his retirement on Monday at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) headquarters.

“Today I say goodbye to international cricket with pride and satisfaction,” Hafeez said at a media conference in Lahore wearing the Pakistan team’s green blazer and tie.

“In fact, I have earned and accomplished more than I had initially envisaged and for that, I am thankful to all my fellow cricketers, captains, support staff and the Pakistan Cricket Board who helped me out during my career.”

The 41-year-old cricketer quit Test cricket in 2018 and played his last ODI in the 2019 World Cup at Lord’s. He was recalled in 2020 for T20 matches and finished the year as the world’s leading run-scorer in the calendar year in the shortest format. His international debut was in an ODI against Zimbabwe in 2003, and his last match was Pakistan’s defeat against Australia in the T20 World Cup semi-final last November.
