Wahab Riaz addresses rumors suggesting comeback to Test cricket

Pakistan speedster Wahab Riaz has revealed that he currently has no plans of making a comeback to Test Cricket.

Speaking to a local news group, Wahab said that if he feels like playing the longest version of the game in the future, he will let the selectors know.

“Currently, I am not planning to make a comeback in Test cricket. But, yes as soon as I make myself ready to play Test cricket, I will inform the board about my availability,” said Wahab.

The Peshawar Zalmi pacer reiterated that he didn’t skip Test cricket to earn money through professional cricket leagues.

“See, I wasn’t a part of the Test team since 2017 so there is no point that I was behind money or anything else. I wanted to have a little rest from Test cricket and focus on white-ball format,” he added.

Speaking on being snubbed from the central contract list, Wahab claimed he wasn’t disappointed one bit.

“My main priority is to represent my country. For me, playing for country is bigger than getting a central contract,” he concluded.

It is to be known that Wahab Riaz announced retirement from Test cricket alongside fellow pacer Mohammad Amir in 2019. The duo reportedly wanted to focus more on white ball cricket.
