Muhammad Usman: “It has been an incredible journey with the UAE cricket team and the cricket board. I would like to thank everyone who played a role in my journey including my teammates, coaches and other support staff. I feel blessed and proud that I got the opportunity of representing UAE for 85 international matches. 

“I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life as I want to remain associated with the sport. I want to wish the UAE team and the players the very best in what is a very exciting time for the game in the country.”

Meanwhile the Emirates Cricket Board has congratulated Muhammad Usman on his international career and thanked him for his services for UAE cricket.
