New Delhi: Former India left-arm spinner Murali Kartik on Saturday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, bringing down the curtains on a career that spanned more than 17 years.
The 37-year-old Kartik played eight Tests, 37 ODIs and one Twenty20 international for India. He made his first class debut with Railways in 1996.
"I have decided to hang up my boots from all forms of competitive cricket but will honour my commitments for Kings XI Punjab during this year's Champions League T20. I want to thank everyone for their support and felt that it is the right time to go. I have enjoyed playing this game and it has given me a lot," Kartik said here during a press conference Saturday.
