Ayesha Naseem retires from international cricket for religious reasons

Pakistan’s Ayesha Naseem, whom Wasim Akram had referred to as having “real talent,” has opted to retire from international cricket early. Ayesha, a promising young cricketer for Pakistan, has declared retirement from international competition at 18. The 18-year-old contacted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to confirm her retirement.

Ayesha played for the Green Army in the T20 World Cup last year in an effort to get experience for the Pakistani white-ball cricket team. Ayesha participated in 30 T20 Internationals and four One Day Internationals (ODIs) for the Pakistani women’s side. She improved her reputation in the cricketing community with her notable cameo against the formidable Australian team. The former Pakistani great hit four sixes and a four, totalling 24 from 20 balls.

According to Live Cricket Score, Naseem decided to leave the world of international cricket to conduct her life according to Islam. Naseem informed PCB, “I’m leaving cricket and want to conduct my life in accordance with Islam. Ayesha’s worldwide debut in 2020 was only three years ago. In 34 international outings for the Green Army, she has amassed more than 400 runs.

For Pakistan, Ayesha scored 33 runs in 4 ODIs. She scored 369 runs for Pakistan in the game’s shortest format. She faced Thailand in her debut international game at the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Ayesha made her last Pakistani appearance against Australia in 2023. In her final game for Pakistan, Naseem faced Australia and went three balls without scoring. Next month, South African women will play three T20I matches against Asian powerhouse Pakistan.
