Abhishek Nayar retires from all forms of cricket

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,” said Nayar.

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 played 103 first-class games, the bulk of them for Mumbai, and scored 5749 runs while taking 173 wickets in a career spanning a decade and a half.
