Ranji Trophy: Another India batter retires from competitive cricket, plays last vs Haryana

Faiz Fazal also played in the IPL, for Rajasthan Royals, for two seasons and scored 183 runs in 12 matches.

Ranji Trophy veteran and India cap Faiz Fazal has announced his retirement from competitive cricket, the player announced in a statement on Sunday. The 38-year-old, who played one ODI for India in 2016, against Zimbabwe, led Vidarbha to their maiden Ranji title in 2018.

In a statement on Sunday, Faiz was quoted as saying by Sportstar, “Representing the Vidarbha cricket team has been a tremendous honour and privilege, and I am immensely grateful for the experiences and memories that I have accumulated over the years.”

“However, as I reflect on my career and personal aspirations, I feel compelled to explore new opportunities and avenues beyond professional cricket. This decision has not been easy, but I am confident that it is the right step for my personal and professional growth.”

Faiz made his first-class debut way back in 2003, and impressed instantly with a knock of 151 against Jammu & Kashmir. Since then he has scored 9183 runs in FC, 3641 runs in List A, and 1273 runs in T20s. In his last match, against Haryana, he returned with scores of 1 and 0.
