Former Pakistani pacer Umar Gul played his last game as a professional cricketer Friday night, marking the end of an era which saw him spearhead Pakistan cricket team’s pace attack and bamboozle batsmen around the world with his lethal yorkers.
The bowler retired after his side, Balochistan, was eliminated from the ongoing National T20 Cup by the Shan Masood-led Southern Punjab.
Gul, who was a key member of the team that won the T20 World Cup for Pakistan in 2009 in England, retired with 427 international wickets to his name. He has played 47 Tests, 130 ODIS and 60 T20s for Pakistan.
