Mid-pace Joginder Sharma, who was part of the team led by skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the final over of the inaugural T20 World Cup final, has retired from all forms of cricket. He announced it on Twitter, after which his fans were heartbroken.
New Delhi. Former Indian midfielder Joginder Sharma announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Friday. He gave the team victory in the last over in the 2007 T20 World Cup final against Pakistan. Joginder represented India in four ODIs and as many T20Is between 2004 and 2007, taking five wickets.
Joginder, who represents Haryana in domestic cricket, said in a message posted on Twitter that my cricketing career from 2002 to 2017 has been the best years of my life and it has been an honor to represent India at the highest level. He said that it has been an honor to play with all my teammates, coaches, mentors and support staff and I thank you all for helping me make my dream come true.
Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni handed him the ball in the last over of the inaugural T20 World Cup final and the inexperienced Joginder led India to victory in one of the most spectacular moments in cricket history. This match turned out to be Joginder’s last match for the country. He was with the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, after which he joined the police service and held the position of Deputy Superintendent of Police.
It also played a very important role during the Covid-19 pandemic. “I am excited to announce that I am exploring new opportunities in the world of cricket and its business side, which will allow me to stay connected to the sport I love so much,” he said. He recently appeared in the Legends Cricket League in September of last year.
