Usman Khawaja broke his silence on issues related to retirement and told the real story

AUS vs NZ: Australia’s star batsman Usman Khawaja is not retiring from Test cricket. Before the start of the two-Test series against New Zealand, Khawaja made it clear that he will continue to play for Australia and has no plans to retire. There were earlier speculations that after David Warner, the 37-year-old Khawaja might also say goodbye to Test cricket. Recently, Usman Khawaja was also awarded the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year award.

Following the retirement of David Warner, Khawaja and Smith take over the opening responsibilities for Australia. Khawaja performed well last year, scoring 1210 runs in 13 Test matches. Khawaja said: “I don’t think too far ahead. Firstly, it’s a difficult game and you can’t think too far ahead. Nobody knows what will happen next. There’s no telling when you’ll start to fall. That’s why you should stay close to the truth.”

Therefore, questions about Khawaja arose

Khawaja further said, “I can understand that I am 37 years old. That’s why the question is asked that I’m retiring soon. But we also have other players. Nathan Lyon is 36 years old. Smith is also 35 years old. We have a team of experienced players. My goal is to contribute to the team. I enjoy the game and am now fully fit to play Test cricket.”

Let us tell you that the Australian team will not play many test matches this year. After the two-Test series against New Zealand, the Australian team will not play Test cricket until the end of this year. Australia has to play a Test series against India in December 2024.
