Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Aamir on Friday announced his retirement from Test cricket. Aamir has played 36 Test matches for Pakistan.

Mohammed Aamir issued a statement saying, "It is proud to represent Pakistan in the most traditional form of cricket, however, I have decided to retire from Tests now to focus on limited overs cricket."

"It has not been an easy decision to make and I have been thinking about this for some time. But with the ICC World Test Championship commencing shortly, and Pakistan boasting some very exciting young fast bowlers, it is appropriate that I call on my time in Test cricket so that the selectors can plan accordingly".

"I want to thank all my team-mates as well the opponents in red-ball cricket. It has been a privilege to play with and against them. I am sure our paths will continue to cross in limited-overs cricket as all of us play and compete with the same vigour and determination."

"I also want to thank the PCB for providing me the opportunity to don the golden star on my chest. And, I am grateful to my coaches who have groomed me at various stages of my career."

Aamir played his first Test match against Sri Lanka in 2009 at the age of 17. He has so far taken 119 wickets in Test cricket. He last played Test matches against South Africa.In 2010 due to match fixing, he was banned for five years. He returned to Test cricket in 2016.
