In a shocking turn of events, Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has announced his retirement from T20I cricket. This decision follows India's victory against South Africa, marking Jadeja's final international appearance as he joins Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the retirement list in T20Is.

The 35-year-old Jamnagar born took to his social media and said, “With a heart full of gratitude, I bid farewell to T20 internationals. Like a steadfast horse galloping with pride, I’ve always given my best for my country and will continue to do so in other formats.” 

Highlighting the significance of clinching the World Cup, he added, “Winning the T20 World Cup was a dream come true, a pinnacle of my T20 International career.”

Jadeja may not have dazzled in this year’s ICC World T20, yet he has masterfully steered the Indian team across all three formats, each reigned supreme in world cricket over the last decade.

In 74 T20Is, Jadeja has amassed 515 runs, boasting an average of 21.45 and a strike rate of 127.16. With the ball, the left-arm orthodox spinner has claimed 54 wickets at an economy rate of 7.13.

Jadeja made his T20 international debut against Sri Lanka on February 10, 2009, and is widely regarded as one of the best all-rounders of his generation.
