India pacer Sudeep Tyagi announces retirement from all formats


Uttar Pradesh and India fast bowler Sudeep Tyagi on Tuesday (November 17) announced his retirement from all formats of the game. The pacer took to his Twitter page to announce his decision.

33-year-old Tyagi made his first-class debut in 2007 and immediately impressed with a ten-wicket haul in his maiden outing. In 41 first-class games, he picked up 109 wickets at an average of 31.99. Two years later, he was handed a T20I debut against Sri Lanka, and it remained his only match in the shortest format. He then went on to make his ODI debut a few days later but ended up playing just four of them in his entire career. Tyagi played for the Chennai Super Kings in the 2009 and 2010 IPL seasons.

“I want to thank MS Dhoni under whom I played my first ODI. I want to thank my role models Mohammad Kaif, RP Singh and Suresh Raina. It is very difficult to do this but to move ahead we must let go,” Tyagi wrote in his letter posted on Twitter.
