He retired from One-Day Internationals following the 2015 World Cup, but remained Pakistan’s Test captain, guiding the team to a 2-2 series draw in England in 2016.
Later in the year, a loss in Australia put pressure on his position. He and Younus Khan both retired after the end of Pakistan’s West Indies tour in May 2017.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) also wish him by sharing a video on social media.
