Yo Mahesh announced his retirement from all types of cricket on Sunday (December 20th). The 32-year-old has played 50 top-class games, 61 List A and 46 T20 games in his career since 2006.

Mahesh’s last T20 appearance was last year and the all-rounder appeared in 18 Indian Premier League games for Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils. “To begin with, I would like to thank BCCI for the opportunity to represent India at the U19 and Indian A levels,” he said in his statement. “It was an honor and I am proud to call it the highest point of my career.

“For my two IPL franchises, DD and CSK, who trust me to represent them and give me the opportunity to share the locker room with the legends of the game. The past five years have been injury-related, but I’m grateful for that India Cements for being solid and having my back. I want to thank my state cricket, Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, for promoting me from age 14 and graduating from top notch cricket when I was 12. ”

Mahesh made his first-rate debut against Bengal in 2006, but his breakthrough year came in 2008 when he bagged 16 wickets for Daredevils in the IPL’s inaugural season. He couldn’t get started, however, and only picked up five wickets over the next seven seasons. He ends his career with 253 wickets in various formats and with over 1000 runs in first-class cricket.
