Indian wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel retired from international cricket. The Gujarat player ended his 18-year-long career through a lengthy post written on social media. Patel, 35, represented India in 25 Tests, 38 ODIs and two T20 Internationals. Parthiv, who played 194 first-class matches for Gujarat, has a tremendous record in domestic cricket. Earlier this year, he also scored a 27th first class century against Goa in the Ranji Trophy, which also completed 11 thousand first class runs.

Parthiv Patel, first elected to the Indian team in 2002, made his international debut at the age of 17 years and 153 days, which is a record in itself. He later became the permanent wicketkeeper batsman of the ODI team as well, but later lost his place in 2004 after the entry of Dinesh Karthik and then Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Usually the Indian team passes through the Ranji Trophy, but it is interesting that the player played his first first-class cricket in 2004, two years and two months after his Test debut.

Parthiv Patel, who played his last Test match against South Africa in 2018, was never able to confirm his place in the team. While the last time he played in one-day format was in 2012. Recently, in response to a question, he said that, ‘I do not consider myself unlucky because of playing in the Dhoni era. I had a chance to perform before them. Dhoni came into the team because I did not play some series well and I was dropped from the team. Dhoni cashed in the opportunities, which I failed.
