India’s most-youngest talent to play the longest format of the game, Parthiv Patel has put an end to his 18 years long cricketing career. Patel took to Twitter to announce his retirement from all forms of the game with just three months left in his 36th birthday. He debuted at the age of just 17 years.

‘I feel heavier with gratitude towards many’ says Parthiv

Another underrated career has come to an end. Yes, we are talking about wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel who has announced his retirement from all formats of the game. 35-year-old Parthiv puts the curtains on his 18 years long career.

Well, it is not clear that will he continue with franchise cricket or not. As he has good stats in the Indian Premier League where he played for different teams.

In his tweet filled with emotions, he mentioned that he is feeling heavier in announcing his retirement. He thanked BCCI for trusting in a 17 years old boy with a babyface. He held BCCI as holding hand for him throughout his career. He added gratitude to many who helped in his professional career.

Here you will find the tweet, 

Parthiv made his debut through the longest format of the game under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly at the age of 17. He went on playing for 18 years. His career observed many ups and downs with irregularities. Thus, the left-handed just managed to play 65 international matches in total which includes 25 tests, 38 one-days, and two T-20 internationals. 

Patel added nearly 1700 runs i.e. 1696 in his international career across the format with the highest came in the longest format of the game. He scored 934 runs with six half-centuries in it.

One Day Internationals contributed a total of 736 runs in his bucket. Though, he was a good keeper than a batsman. He dismissed 72 batsmen in his Test career which involves 10 stumpings and 62 brilliant catches. 

He specially thanked ‘dada’ referring to BCCI president and former captain Sourav Ganguly for giving him the chance to represent India. Just like other wicket-keepers, Parthiv lost his gloves when Mahendra Singh Dhoni came into the playing eleven. But that’s what sportsman spirit is, Parthiv has never held Ms. Dhoni responsible for taking his gloves.

He has always said that he and Karthik (Dinesh Karthik) had so many chances to establish their place before the arrival of Ms. Dhoni. They failed to cement their place in the team.


It is the most-sad moment for any sports person in his or her career when it comes to retirement. Wishing Parthiv a happy second inning. Thanks for being a true ambassador of cricket.
