Pankaj Singh announces retirement from all forms of cricket

33

Rajasthan fast bowler Pankaj Singh has retired from all forms of cricket. Pankaj, who was instrumental in Rajasthan’s consecutive Ranji Trophy winning seasons in 2010-11 and 2011-12, played two Tests and one ODI for India. Pankaj also featured, rather sporadically, in five seasons of the IPL with 11 wickets in 20 matches to his name.

“It’s not an easy decision to make, however, there comes a time in every sports person’s life where one has to call it a day. With a heavy heart and mixed emotions, I officially announce my retirement from all forms of cricket,” he said in a statement.

“Today is the most difficult day for me but it is also a day of reflection and gratitude. Playing for RCA, BCCI, IPL, and CAP has been a tremendous honour for me. I have been part of RCA for close to 15 years and reached many milestones and gained incredible experience under the roof RCA. My journey with RCA has always been memorable and will always remain first priority for me,” he said.
