Fast bowler RP Singh announces retirement from international cricket
Former India pacer RP Singh on Tuesday decided to announce his retirement from international cricket. Taking to Twitter to make this decision public, Singh wrote,” 3 years ago today, on 4th September 2005 was the first time I donned the Indian jersey. It was the stepping-stone to what would become the most cherished moments of my life.”
“Today as I hang my boots and call it a day, I wish to remember and give thanks to each and everyone who made this journey possible,” his tweet further read.
A veteran of 82 matches in all the three formats, the 32-year old enjoyed a six-year career for India where he picked up 124 international wickets.
One of the most crucial parts of the Indian successful campaign in the inaugural World T20 in South Africa, Singh later played an important role when India defeated Australia later that year. For someone born in a small village, I never thought I would be able to say this – I have lived my dream. And for that, I have nobody else to thank but you. My fans. For believing in me. for criticizing me and for hailing me but mainly for just being there for me. Thank you!,” Singh said.
