Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayar retires from all forms of cricket
Mumbai, October 23
Veteran Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayar has retired from all forms of cricket.
“I’m absolutely satisfied... there are so many cricketers out there who would want to be in the position I am today. I can only be grateful and thankful to have had the opportunity to play for this long... absolutely no regrets...I’m a happy man,” Nayar told PTI on Wednesday.
Nayar represented India in only three ODIs but his record as a first-class player is more promising.
Known as the Mumbai team’s crisis man for his penchant to bail the side out of difficult situations, the 36-year-old has played 103 first-class games, the bulk of them for Mumbai, and scored 5,749 runs while taking 173 wickets.
Nayar, during his illustrious career, won many games for domestic heavyweights Mumbai during a career spanning a decade and a half. PTI
