Fast bowler Ashoke Dinda, 36, has retired from all forms of the game after 15 years in Bengal cricket. Addressing the media, in Kolkata, Dinda announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Tuesday, February 2.

The right-handed pacer made his international debut in 2009, in a T20I against Sri Lanka, followed by making his ODI debut in Zimbabwe in 2010. He went on to play 13 ODIs, with the last one being against England at Rajkot in 2013 and 9 T20I matches for India.

Although Dinda only had a short-lived international career (2009-2013), he had a huge international career for Bengal in domestic cricket. Dinda was dropped by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) in December 2019 during the Ranji Trophy after he abused the Bengal cricket team's bowling coach Ranadeb Bose. The pacer was asked to apologize to Bose but Dinda refused to do so.

Dinda played 116 first-class matches for Bengal, bagging 420 wickets at a bowling average of 28.28. In List A matches, he played 98 fixtures in his career bagging 151 wickets- all for Bengal cricket team. He last appeared in T20 fixtures for Goa, last month, in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
