Shoaib Malik has hilariously trolled Ramiz Raja after the latter suggested that the former Pakistan captain and Mohammad Hafeez should retire from the game. Hafeez and Shoaib Malik are currently the most experienced players not only in Pakistan team but also in international cricket.
Both of them have retired from Tests already while Malik also ended his ODI career after the World Cup last year. On the other hand, Hafeez has made himself available for selection in both ODIsa s well as T20I teams. Both the players were dropped from the team after the World Cup but were recalled earlier this year for the home T20I series against Bangladesh.
Shoaib Malik impressed straightaway in his comeback series and scored a match-winning fifty on his comeback. That unbeaten knock of 58 showed that he still has a lot to offer.
Age is definitely not on their side but Hafeez, 39 and Shoaib Malik, 38, have insisted they still have plenty of cricket left in them to represent Pakistan in the World T20 Cup later this year in Australia. Recently, Hafeez has said that he will retire from all international cricket after the mega T20 event. On the other hand, Malik remains tight lipped on his future in international cricket.
And while speculation about their future continues to rise, Shoaib Malik hilariously trolled Ramiz Raja for his comments. Taking to Twitter, the veteran batsman hilariously said that he agrees with Raja before stating that all three of them – he, Hafeez and Raja – should retire together in 2022.
“Yes @iramizraja bhai agreed. Since all 3 of us are the end of our careers let’s retire gracefully together – I’ll call and let’s plan this for 2022? @MHafeez22,” wrote the batsman.

Malik recently impressed in the Pakistan Super League too. Playing for Peshawar Zalmi, the right-handed batsman scored three fifties in eight games.
