Taking a cue from Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India and Maharashtra batter Kedar Jadhav on Monday announced his retirement from international cricket, four years since his last appearance for the country. The 39-year-old, who made his international debut for India in November 2014 during an ODI against Sri Lanka at Ranchi, went on to play 73 one-dayers and nine T20Is. “Thank you all For your love and support throughout my Career from 1500 hrs. Consider me as retired from all forms of cricket,” (sic) wrote Jadhav on X in the manner similar to Dhoni’s retirement announcement in 2020. Jadhav, meanwhile, is currently captaining Kolhapur Tuskers in the Maharashtra Premier League which got underway in Pune on Sunday.

Jadhav scored 1,389 runs at 42.09 with two centuries and six fifties for India in 73 ODIs whereas he also made 122 runs in the six outings in the nine T20Is he played.

Arguably, Jadhav’s biggest moment under the sun came during the Pune ODI against England in January 2017, when he got his second ODI ton, smashing a brutal 76-ball 120 with 12 fours and four sixes to fire India to a three-wicket win in a high-scoring contest.

Jadhav teamed up with Virat Kohli (122) to put on 200 from a mere 147 balls for the fifth wicket after India were reduced to 63/4 at one stage chasing 351.

Having developed his off-spin skills, Jadhav also emerged as potent option with the ball with his slingy action that fetched him 27 ODI wickets.
