Yusuf Pathan, double World Champion, has retired from all forms of cricket, on Friday (February 26).

"I officially announce retirement from all forms of the game. I thank my family, friends, fans, team, and the whole country wholeheartedly for all the support and love. I am sure you will continue to encourage me in future as well," the 38-year-old said on Twitter.

Yusuf played 57 ODIs and 22 T20Is for the country, accumulating 810 runs and 236 runs respectively. One of the highlights of his career in international cricket was his unbeaten 123 against New Zealand in Bangalore in 2010 when India chased down a target of 316. He followed it up with a hundred versus South Africa in Centurion. Yusuf also bowled off-spin and took 46 international wickets.

Yusuf was a member of both the T20 and 50-over World Cup-winning India squads of 2007 and 2011 respectively.

Yusuf was also a part of the Indian Premier League for a period of 12 years, a tournament he won with both Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. He aggregated 3204 runs and bagged 42 wickets in the IPL.

Yusuf made his first-class debut back in the 2001-02 domestic season for Baroda against Saurashtra. He went on to accumulate over 4800 runs in first-class cricket and finished with 201 wickets. His finest moment in his domestic career came in the Duleep Trophy game against South Zone in February 2010 when he composed a brilliant, unbeaten 210 to help West Zone chase down a monstrous target of 541 against the Dinesh Karthik-led South Zone side.
