Kedar Jadhav represented India in 73 ODIs and nine T20Is.

Maharashtra batsman Kedar Jadhav announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Tuesday, June 3, 2024. The 39-year-old made this announcement via his social media handles. He did this in a similar way to how former India captain MS Dhoni announced his international retirement.

In 2020, Dhoni posted a video on Instagram to confirm his retirement from international cricket. Jadhav also posted a video on Instagram, which included several pictures with Dhoni, and Jadhav also used a similar caption that the former India skipper had written.

A middle-order batsman who could contribute with part-time off-spin, Kedar Jadhav played 73 ODIs and nine T20Is for India between 2014 and 2020. He was part of the team that won the 2018 Asia Cup and was in India’s squad in the World Cup 2019 in England.

Jadhav wrote, “Thank you all For your love and support throughout my Career from 1500 hrsConsider me as retired from all forms of cricket (sic)”

In the video, the Maharashtra cricketer used a number of pictures with Dhoni, under whom Jadhav played at Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as well.
