Indian Cricketer Mohammad Kaif today announced his retirement from all forms of the game.
The 37-year-old posted an emotional message on his Twitter page to bid adieu to the game, almost 12 years after he last played for the Indian team.
Kaif played 13 Tests and 125 ODIs for India and will always be remembered for his match-winning knock of 87 at the Lord’s during the epic Natwest Trophy final in 2002.
In his 13 Test appearances, Kaif logged 2753 runs at an average of 32.01, including two hundreds and 17 half-centuries.
Kaif, who has won the Ranji Trophy for Uttar Pradesh, last played first-class cricket for Chattisgarh.
Kaif will always be remembered as being one of the finest fielders that India has ever produced.
When I started playing Cricket,the dream was to play in the India Cap one day.Have been very fortunate to step on to the field & represent my country on 190 days of my life. Today is an apt day for me to announce my retirement from all competetive Cricket. Thank you everyone 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/HzKZDWgXBo
