Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq's ODI retirement plans don’t change even after the unforgettable World Cup win against Pakistan

The fast bowler of Afghanistan's cricket team, Naveen ul Haq, is adamant that he will not continue playing ODI cricket beyond the ongoing World Cup, despite Afghanistan's sensational showing in the tournament in India. The 24-year-old pacer announced he would retire from the 50-over format of the game, joining a bandwagon of modern-day cricketers who are opting out of the longest white-ball format in order to prolong their T20 careers.
On Monday, Naveen-ul-Haq said that his decision about ODI retirement was final while acknowledging the impact the World Cup triumphs over Pakistan and England would have on Afghanistan's ODI story in the future.
