India all-rounder Yusuf Pathan announced his retirement from all formats of cricket on Friday in a social media post, just hours after fast bowler R Vinay Kumar announced his retirement from the sport.

Yusuf Pathan played 57 ODIs and 22 T20 internationals for Team India between 2008 and 2012. Yusuf amassed 810 runs in the 50-over format at an average of 27 with 2 hundreds and 3 fifties while in the shortest format he scored 236 runs at 18.15 at a strike rate of over 146.

Yusuf is set to represent India Legends in the Road Safety World Series, which will resume next month with six participants in action. The inaugural edition of the tournament was played in

March 2020 before the COVID pandemic brought the tournament to an abrupt halt.

Yusuf is set to appear for the India Legends alongside the veterans such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar, and his brother Irfan Pathan.

In a long statement, Pathan wrote: "I still remember the day when I wore the India jersey for the first time. I didn't only wear the jersey that day, but I took upon my family's, coach's, friends the whole country's and my own expectations on my shoulders as well. Since my childhood, my life has revolved only around Cricket. I played at international level, domestic level and in the IPL in my career.
