The 2007 T20 World Cup-winning batter, who last played for India in 2015, took to Twitter to announce his decision. "It's been 20 years since I started playing professional cricket, and it has been the greatest honour to represent my country and state, Karnataka- wonderful journey of ups and downs; one that has been fulfilling, rewarding, enjoyable and has allowed me to grow as a human being. However, all good things must come to an end and with a grateful heart I have decided to retire from all forms of Indian cricket. While I will spend a significant time with my young family, I look forward to charting a new phase in life," he wrote in his farewell note. He also thanked all the IPL teams he has played so far.
