'Thanks for the services, professor': Twitter reacts as Muhammad Hafeez retires from Test cricket

'Thanks for the services, professor': Twitter reacts as Muhammad Hafeez retires from Test cricket
All-rounder Muhammad Hafeez has announced his retirement from Test cricket today. Hafeez said that he would be retiring from Test cricket but will continue to feature in the shorter format of the game.


The decision, however, has hardly come as a surprise.

After getting out for a duck on just the 4th ball of Pakistan’s first innings, Hafeez was subjected to severe criticism across social media platforms. His form of late in Tests has also not been very impressive and this might have led to the decision.

Here’s what Twitter had to say about Hafeez getting out on 0 earlier today

Prediction Level: this user


Hafeez’s record has not been very impressive


Guess Hafeez figured it out too?


Here are a few stats that might not impress many


‘Hafeez struggling on UAE pitches’


His announcement has also brought about reactions from Twitter and people are wishing him well for future ventures

‘My ideal player’


‘Hopefully he can make World Cup 2019 squad’


‘Thanks for the services professor’


Here’s this user’s favourite memory of Hafeez


It is clear that Hafeez was unable to perform at the top level in Test cricket and his decision to quit the format is timely.

That he would get to focus more on the shorter format is the reason why. Because the all-rounder might play a crucial role during the 2019 World Cup and T20I competitions.

Nonetheless, we would like to wish the professor very best of luck for the future. #ThankYouHafeez
