Taking to social media, the legendary pacer penned an emotional retirement post expressing her gratitude to each and everyone who was a part of her 20-year-long journey.

“To my cricket family and beyond. So, the day has finally arrived! Like every journey has an end, my cricket journey of over 20 years ends today as I announce my retirement from all forms Of cricket. As Ernest Hemingway said, `It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end. For me, this journey has been the most satisfying. It has been exhilarating, thrilling to say the least adventurous. I have had the honour of donning the India jersey for over two decades and serving my country to the best of my abilities. There is a sense of pride every time I hear the National Anthem before a match,” Jhulan wrote.

Her retirement did come as a shocker but this was meant to happen, sooner or later. Hence, her fans and celebs alike wished her luck for the future and patted her back for being an inspiration to many and an asset to the women’s Indian cricket team.
