Usman Shinwari, a left-arm pacer, has announced his retirement from the longest format of cricket in order to play more games in shorter formats.

Shinwari has been plagued by injuries throughout his cricketing career, limiting his appearances in domestic matches and pushing him down the pecking order for national team selection.

Shinwari stated on his official Twitter account that he is now “absolutely fit” to play cricket again. He had been ruled out of the squad for a long time due to a back injury.

In a tweet, he announced his retirement from the red-ball format. “…but due to my Doctors and physio advice, I have to leave long format to avoid such injuries in the future and prolong my cricket career,” he wrote in the tweet. I’m stepping down from Red Ball.”

The 37-year-old has only played one Test match for Pakistan and has appeared in 33 first-class matches throughout his career. While his statistics in a first-class career are adequate, he has excelled in the limited-overs format. In 17 ODIs, he has 34 wickets at an average of 18.60 and an economy rate of 4.94. Shinwari will be looking to establish himself in the upcoming domestic limited-overs season and re-enter Pakistan’s limited-overs format.
