Parthiv Patel, who started his international cricket career as a wicket-keeper batsman for India in 2002, has now retired from all types of cricket formats. He played his first series against England in the format of Test cricket. In this way, he has given information about his retirement through a social media account.
Parthiv describes in his letter an 18-year journey of a cricketing career. Along with this, he has specially greeted his first captain Sourav Ganguly. Who first showed confidence in this player and gave an opportunity to play for Team India. Parthiv expressed his gratitude in his letter, saying, “I will be especially indebted to Dada (Sourav Ganguly) who reposed faith in me and gave me an opportunity to play.”
In this way, Parthiv never became a regular member of Team India in his 18-year career. The main reason for this is the arrival of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the year 2004. However, in an interview, Parthiv denied this and said that anyone who plays well deserves a place in the team. In this way, it became difficult for Parthiv to make a place in Team India after Dhoni’s arrival and he is often included as Dhoni’s backup wicketkeeper.
