Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik has said that he is not considering retirement from Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket.

The 39-year-old had, recently, slammed the Pakistan team management for not allowing skipper Babar Azam to take independent decisions. 

Malik also said that Pakistan team needs an international white-ball coach, while stating that the current team management relies on likes and dislikes.     

“I am saying very clearly today I have not even thought about retirement. I have no plans to retire now because I am fit, I can bat, and I can bowl,” Malik was quoted as saying by Press Trust of India.

“I have recently signed two-year contracts in some leagues so where does the question of me taking retirement after the World Cup arise,” he added.

He reiterated that his fitness levels are in line with requirements of international cricket.

“I can field in hotspots, I can take two runs and I can save two runs. When I have to bowl I can also bowl and I am batting well. My fitness is top grade,” he said.

The former Pakistan captain has played in 35 Tests, 287 one-day internationals and 116 T20 internationals for his country. He has already brought the curtain down on his Test and ODI career.
