Ravindra Jadeja, the star all-rounder of the Indian cricket team, has announced his retirement from T20 internationals following India’s T20 World Cup 2024 triumph. Jadeja’s decision comes hot on the heels of similar retirements by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma after their historic victory in Barbados.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Jadeja expressed his gratitude and bid farewell to T20 internationals. He wrote, “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. Winning the T20 World Cup was a dream come true, a pinnacle of my T20 International career. Thank you for the memories, the cheers, and the unwavering support.”

Jadeja, aged 35, played 74 T20Is, contributing with both bat and ball—scoring 515 runs and taking 54 wickets.

Earlier, right after the T20 World Cup win, Virat Kohli announced his retirement while receiving the player of the match trophy. Rohit Sharma on the other hand called time on his career in the post-match press conference in Barbados.

Kohli said during his post-match speech that it was time for the next generation to take over and that he was eternally grateful to the sport. Rohit on the other hand signed off by saying that, maybe he was meant to win the T20 World Cup at the end of his career, just like he had started his career by winning the title in 2007.
