Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf shockingly wanted to take international retirement: Report

Rauf couldn’t take all the harsh words of fans after he decided not to play the Test series in Australia and thought of hanging up his boots.

Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf shockingly wanted to take international retirement: Report

Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf considered retirement from international cricket late last year after he was criticised for opting out of the Test series in Australia, according to a media report.

According to a Pakistani media outlet, Rauf was so disheartened by the criticism that he contemplated international retirement at one point but after being advised by his family and friends, he decided against it.

Ahead of Pakistan’s three-Test series in Australia, Rauf came in for criticism after it was revealed that he pulled out from the tour after chief selector Wahab Riaz and team director Mohammad Hafeez had a chat with him.

Riaz claimed Rauf had agreed to be available for the Tests but pulled out later, while another report claimed through a source close to the right-arm pacer that he never made any commitment for it.

Haris withdrew citing concerns over this fitness and workload management.

Haris had also told former chief coach Mickey Arthur during the 50-overs World Cup in India his body would not be able to take the strain of such a workload.

Arthur too had tried to convince Rauf play the Tests in Australia owing to his ability to generate high pace.

Despite Arthur's efforts, Haris consistently rejected the suggestion, citing his limited exposure in first-class cricket and concerns about potential injuries.

Haris suffered an injury after bowling just 13 overs in the only Test he played, against England in December 2022.

The report further claimed that during the World Cup, the 30-year-old fast bowler had cautioned the team management about his fitness and workload management concerns.

Haris earned the unwanted tag of becoming the most expensive bowler in World Cup history in Pakistan’s nine games in India.
