38-year-old Rumeli Dhar has decided to retire from all forms of cricket for India.

She announced her retirement via her Instagram handle and thanked all her friends, family, the BCCI and others.

Additionally, Dhar was also a former India captain and made her debut in 2003 for India against England.

She played 4 Tests, 78 ODIs and 18 T20Is for India.

She made her comeback in 2018 for India.

Dhar replaced Jhulan Goswami for a T20I series against South Africa.

She was an instrumental figure during the 2005 ICC Women’s ODI World Cup in South Africa.

However, a string of injuries forced Dhar to remain out of India’s cricketing sphere and she ultimately decided to quit the game.

In the domestic sphere, Dhar has played for Bengal, Rajasthan, Assam, Railways, Air India and Delhi.

Dhar now wants to nurture young talents and give her small contribution to the sport of cricket by starting a second innings of her life.
