23 Jun Wahab Riaz’ spell cut short as he is called up for Pakistan squad
Wahab Riaz’s spell with the club has come to a premature end after he was called up early to a Pakistan training squad ahead of their upcoming Test series against England.
Having joined The Eagles at the beginning of the NatWest T20 Blast campaign, Riaz was scheduled to play the first seven matches but his time with the club has finished.v
Chris Silverwood commented: “It is a shame Wahab’s spell has been cut short. Obviously we understand that his international commitments come first and that is the risk you take when signing international quality players.
“We thank Wahab for his efforts and his commitment to the club during his spell.”
The Pakistan international does have the option to return to the club should Chris Silverwood’s men reach Finals Day.
Everyone at the club thanks Wahab for his efforts during his spell at The E.C.G and wishes him well for the future.
