Tanmay Srivastava, the highest scorer of U-19 World Cup in 2008 when Virat Kohli led India to the title, has announced retirement from cricket. Srivastava, 30, took to Twitter to announce his retirement.

“It’s time to bid adeu to my cricketing playing career! I’ve built memories, made friends, achieved the best I could in these years playing Junior Cricket, Ranji Trophy and most importantly being a good performer in U-19 World Cup,2008 and bringing the cup home with the team,” he wrote with his statement which he shared as a series of screenshots.

The left-hander, who had scored 262 runs in just 6 matches at an average of 52.40 in the 2008 edition of the U-19 World Cup, played for Uttarakhand in first-class cricket and also led them after Unmukt Chand was sacked as captain midway through the season. He has played 90 first-class matches and scored 4918 runs so far.

“I have had some very good memories on and off the field. As a child, when my father took me to the stadium, many a times I got injured and could not play. He always told me that there will be many moments like these in life when you will face a fall, they must not make you weak but motivate you to come back stronger,” said Srivastava in his retirement announcement.
