Former Indian cricketer Kedar Jadhav has called it quits on his decade-long cricketing career at the age of 39. He took to his social media handle to confirm the speculations with a unique caption that resonated with the memories of MS Dhoni’s retirement announcement. 

Kedar Jadhav, born and raised in Maharashtra, made his international debut for India back in 2014 as a batting all-rounder. His unconventional off-spin action was an X-factor as his IPL fame with CSK and RCB fast-tracked his promotion to the national side.

One of his standout performances came in the 2017 ODI series against England, where his unbeaten 120 off 76 balls helped India chase down a daunting target and he went onto play for India in World Cup 2019.

However, inconsistency cost Jadhav his place on the national side, and he eventually became a lost hero. After getting unsold in last year’s auctions, Jadhav served as an analyst for broadcasting media companies in IPL 2024.

As he turned 39 this year, Kedar Jadhav finally decided to end his on-field career. Earlier today, Jadhav took to his Instagram handle and shared a slideshow of his best moments on the field to officially announce his retirement from all forms of cricket.

The batter thanked fans for all the support and stated that from 1500 hours, fans should consider him a former cricketer.

Post-retirement, Jadhav is expected to continue exploring commentary or field expert roles in the future.

Notably, Kedar Jadhav’s retirement announcement style drew similarities from MS Dhoni when he officiated his retirement in a similar fashion back in 2020. 

After enduring humiliation in the 2019 World Cup, Dhoni disappeared from the cricketing scene for a year before eventually confirming his retirement in August, 2020 with a rare social media post.
