Gautam Gambhir Announces Retirement From The Game

Gautam Gambhir Announces Retirement From The Game

His last match will be Delhi's Ranji Trophy match against Andhra at his home ground, Feroz Shah Kotla, beginning on December 6.

Gambhir, who recently drew criticism for cherrypicking his Delhi Ranji appearances, said he tried hard to make a comeback in this year's IPL but could not make it count. In 2016, I was on my knees again.

"After more than 15 years of cricket for my country, I want to retire from playing this lovely game", Gambhir said in a video shared on his Facebook. He also struck eleven tons in 147 ODIs.

The left-handed opener won both the World T20 in 2007 and the World Cup in 2011, top-scoring in both finals, during a 12-year worldwide career between 2004 and 2016. Gambhir has represented India in 58 Tests, 147 ODIs and 37 T20Is in 15 years long global career. After 15 years of global cricketing career the 2009 ICC Test Player of the Year chose to call it a day. It said the same: 'IT IS OVER GAUTI'. I was dropped after the Rajkot Test match against England. His opening partnership with Virendar Sehwag was particularly successful, with the pair scoring 4,412 runs in 87 innings together, from 2004 to 2012. Having represented the Delhi Daredevils in the first three seasons of the IPL, Gambhir returned with much fanfare in 2018, but quit captaincy six matches into the side's campaign and was replaced by Shreyas Iyer.

Gautam Gambhir bids emotional adieu to cricket

"This may sound a little wishful but I've seen wishes come true". Two World Cups, highest run-getter in finals of both these games is a stuff dreams are made of and I only had this dream of winning the World Cup for you all.

However, a couple of years after the World Cup heroic, Gambhir lost his place in the team.

The other such chapters in his career included being the ICC's Test batsman of the year in 2009, and being a part of a world number one Indian Test team. I know the time is just right.

"The historic series win in New Zealand and in CB series in Australia will be reflected upon fondly", he said. "But I hope the current Indian team Down Under can overshadow our feats".
