ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s fast bowler Hassan Ali received a unique request for his retirement from a social media user.
On the social media platform, Twitter, a user named “Wazir” shared a video of Peshawar Zalmi’s bowler Arshad Iqbal’s bowling, commenting, “Watch his bowling, extra bounce, he rarely bowls a bad ball, and he has to work hard to make the batters earn their runs.”
While tagging Hassan Ali, the social media user added a humorous comment, saying, “Hassan Ali, just retire now.”
In response to the request for his retirement, Hassan Ali humorously wrote, “There’s no doubt that Arshad is a great bowler, but why should I retire? I’m only a 29-year-old young man.”
No doute Arshad is very good bowler,

Hasan Ali was not included in the Pakistan squad for the tournament due to his poor performance in the previous series. He also missed the training camp before the Asia Cup due to a back injury. He was replaced by young fast bowler Naseem Shah, who impressed with his pace and swing in the Asia Cup.
Hasan Ali has been a key bowler for Pakistan in the past, especially in the 2017 Champions Trophy, where he was the leading wicket-taker with 13 wickets and won the Player of the Tournament award. However, he has struggled with his form and fitness in recent times and has been out of favour with the selectors. He will have to work hard to regain his place in the Pakistan team.
