Retirement is an inevitable stage of life, everyone has to retire on a certain day. It also pertains to cricket. Some players take retirement due to their poor form and some take retirement due to age. With the growing demands of international cricket, many cricketers also retire from one format to concentrate on the others. 

From New Zealand legend Ross Taylor to West Indies giant Kieron Pollard, we witnessed a couple of cricketers bidding farewell to the international arena in 2022. Their fans are stunned because they believe that these cricketers could play for some more time as they still have a lot of capabilities to perform well on the field. On that note, let’s take a look at eight cricketers who have announced retirement so far in 2022.

Mohammad Hafeez is one of the greatest all-rounders in the history of Pakistan cricket. He played under the Pakistan flag for almost 18 years. He is considered one of the most intelligent batsmen in Pakistan. He could bat at No. 3 and even at the lower order. Besides, he was also more than a handy off-spin bowler. 

Suddenly, he declared his retirement from international cricket earlier this year on social media. Hafeez played his last T20 International match against Australia last year in November. He announced his retirement from international Test cricket in 2018. 

Hafeez made his international debut in 2003 against Zimbabwe. Since then, he has been relentless in the field. He played 392 International matches for Pakistan and scored 12780 runs with the help of 21 centuries and 64 half-centuries. He also has 253 wickets under his belt. He made an impactful performance in the 2017 ICC Champions trophy and has been part of Pakistan’s many World Cup campaigns.
