Joginder Sharma, a former Indian cricketer who famously bowled the final over of the 2007 T20 World Cup final, has ended his career to “explore new opportunities in the world of cricket and in the business side of it.”

Before posting a copy of the letter to Jay Shah, the secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the right-arm medium pacer announced his move.

“Today with immense gratitude and humility I announce my retirement from all forms of international and domestic cricket. My journey from 2002 to 2017 has been the most wonderful years of my life honour representing India level of sport,” he wrote.

“I am excited to announce I will be exploring new opportunities in the world of cricket and also continue to participate in the sport that I love and challenge myself in a new and different environment. I believe that this is the next step in my journey as a cricketer. I look forward to this chapter in my life.”

Over the course of his career, the Haryana cricketer played for India in four ODIs and four T20Is.
