Parthiv Patel announces retirement from all formats of cricket, writes emotional post

new Delhi: Indian wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel retired from all formats of cricket on Wednesday. He announced this through a twitter. Parthiv also wrote an emotional post while retiring. 35-year-old Patel’s entire career was 18 years old. During this time he played 25 Tests, 38 International ODIs and two International T20s for India. He played 194 matches for Gujarat in domestic cricket. He played his last Test against South Africa in Johannesburg in January 2018.

Parthiv wrote in his post, “Today I am retiring from all formats of cricket, putting an end to my 18 year long cricket career.” The BCCI gave me the opportunity to play for Team India at the age of 17, while trusting me. I will always be thankful for the way the BCCI has supported me. ”

He further wrote, ‘I have lived my life as a cricketer and now I have some responsibilities as a father which I want to fulfill now.’

Did test debut at the age of 17
Parthiv made his Test debut for Team India at the age of 17 on a tour of England in 2002. Parthiv Patel holds the record for making the youngest debut as a wicket-keeper batsman for Team India. He has scored 934 runs in 25 Tests at an average of 31.13 and has scored 6 fifties. No century is in his name. Parthiv Patel was also a part of the Indian team selected for the World Cup in 2003 and everyone was surprised at his selection. However, when Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s magic started later, Patel did not get much opportunities in Team India.
