The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday congratulated left-arm spinner Murali Kartik, who retired from all forms of the game recently, and wished his luck for his future. “Murali Kartik has informed the BCCI that he has retired from all forms of the game. On behalf of the BCCI, I congratulate him for a fine career, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement.

 

Kartik announced his retirement from competitive cricket on Saturday after having represented India in eight Tests and 37 ODIs between 1999 and 2007, taking 24 and 37 wickets respectively. However, it was first-class cricket where Kartik was always a force to reckon with 644 wickets from 203 games which also included stints with English county sides like Middlesex, Surrey and Somerset.
