(G.N.S) Dt. 26

Former Indian team player Yusuf Pathan has declared his retirement from all forms of cricket. The 38-year-old has played 57 ODIs and 22 T20Is for India. Yusuf was a part of the victorious squads of the ICC World T20 in 2007 and the ICC World Cup in 2011.

“Winning two World Cups for India and lifting Sachin Tendulkar on my shoulders were some of the best moments of my career,” he wrote in a statement. “I made my international debut under MS Dhoni, IPL debut under Shane Warne, Ranji debut under Jacob Martin and would like to thank them for believing in me.

I thank Gautam Gambhir with whom, at KKR, we won the IPL trophy twice. I would also like to thank my brother and backbone Irfan Pathan who was always there for me during the highs and lows of my career.

“Last but not the least, I would like to thank BCCI and BCA the opportunity to play for my country and state.

“Nothing can keep me away from cricket and my passion for the sport will remain the same. I will continue to entertain everyone even in the future.”
