Afghanistan Pacer Naveen-Ul-Haq Set To Retire From ODIs After Cricket World Cup 2023

Naveen-ul-Haq set to retire from ODIs after 2023 World Cup

Afghanistan pace bowler Naveen-ul-Haq is set to retire from one-day internationals following the ICC World Cup in India, which begins on October 5. After a two-year absence, the right-arm quick has returned to the ODI squad.

Due to a knee injury, Naveen missed the two-match T20I series against Bangladesh and travelled to England for a minor knee operation. Nonetheless, the pace bowler told Cricbuzz on Wednesday (September 27) that he is planning to retire from ODIs on the advice of a doctor because it is the only way to extend his career.

After the World Cup, Naveen announced his retirement from ODI cricket to Live Cricket Score. “My doctors and physiotherapist have advised me to stop playing longer-format cricket and focus on shorter-format cricket because of my workload and recent injuries. I must abandon the longer format and concentrate on T20 cricket if I want to extend my career. Fortunately, I have been cleared to compete in the World Cup. Still, due to my injury, I had been advised to cut out all longer-format cricket and concentrate on shorter formats, which is related to workload management, ” he added.

With 11 wickets in 8 matches for Lucknow Super Giants in the most recent Indian Premier League, Naveen established himself as a valuable commodity in franchise-based cricket.
