Shortly after, Malik took to his Twitter to thank his family, friends, coaches, and fans for the support they provided him through his carrier that spanned 20 years. "Today I retire from One Day International cricket. Huge Thank you to all the players I have played with, coaches I have trained under, family, friends, media, and sponsors.
