Kedar Jadhav announces retirement from all formats of the game


Indian Cricketer Kedar Jadhav has announced his retirement from all formats of the game with immediate effect. He last featured for the Indian Cricket Team back in 2020 in the 2nd ODI game of India’s tour of New Zealand in Auckland. He was also a part of the Men in Blue’s squad in the 2019 ODI World Cup which was won by England

The 39 year old took to X (Formerly known as Twitter) to confirm his retirement and thanked all the Indian Cricket Team fans for the love and support which they showed towards him throughout the entirety of his career. 

“Thank You all for the love and support throughout my career from 1500 hrs. Consider me as retired from all the formats of Cricket,” Kedar wrote in his X post.

Kedar Jadhav represented India in 73 One Day International games and nine T20 International matches for six years between 2014 and 2020. Jadhav flourished under the captaincy of former Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, providing the Men in Blue with consistent finishing touches in the back end of an inning with the bat and troubled batters with his handy unorthodox off spin bowling. 

The 39 year old’s last competitive match was in February of this year where he featured for Maharashtra in a Ranji Trophy match in Pune. He looked in good touch with the bat as he amassed 379 runs with the bat in five games including a fifty and a century in his team’s 2023-24 Ranji Trophy campaign. 

In International Cricket, Jadhav scored 1389 runs in 73 ODI matches, including six half centuries and two centuries. In T20 internationals, he scored 122 runs in nine matches. With the ball, he dismissed batters 27 times at an economy – rate of 5.15 in One Day Cricket.
