‘Gul Dozer’ hangs his boots from professional cricket


Umar Gul has signed off professional cricket after Balochistan failed to qualify for the National T20 Cup semifinals.

Known for his yorkers, Gul represented Pakistan in 163 Tests, 179 ODIs, and 85 T20Is since his international debut in 2003. Gul was one of the prominent Pakistani pacers and his 5-21 against India in Lahore Test and 5-6 vs NZ in T20WC 2009 are still fresh in the memories.

Speaking to a farewell ceremony conducted in his honor, Gul thanked his fans and family for supporting him throughout his career. “It was tough for me to part ways with cricket but nobody stays here forever,” he said.
