Pakistani cricketer Umar Gul on Friday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. In an emotional tweet, Gul wrote that he has decided to bid farewell to cricket after playing this year's National T20 Cup. The 36-year-old, who made his debut for Pakistan in 2003, is best remembered for his blazing 5-wicket haul against India in Lahore in the 2004 Tests. He was also part of the 2009 Pakistan team that clinched the T20 World Cup and was also the highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 13 wickets in 7 matches. Gul has picked 163 wickets in 47 Test matches and 179 and 85 wickets in 130 ODIs and 60 T20Is that he has played for Pakistan respectively.
