In a press conference in Mumbai, the 37-year-old made the announcement, saying: “It’s was a great rollercoaster ride and beautiful story but it has to come to an end. It was the right time to go.”

“After 25 years in cricket, I’ve decided to move on. Cricket has given me everything I have. Thank you for being a part of this journey”

“I made some great friends and some not so great friends in cricket over the years. I have never stopped believing in myself…always believe in yourself”:
