Veteran batsman Gautam Gambhir, on Tuesday, announced his retirement from the game.

His final match will be on his home ground for Delhi against Andhra in the Ranji Trophy, starting on Thursday. I thought all those negative noises were dead.

"It slapped me hard when I got those three ducks in a row in the 2014 IPL". "Then again when I had a awful tour to England the same year".

In his video, Gambhir admits that the thought of retirement has been playing in his mind for a while now saying, "Each time I got out playing for India, or KKR or DD, this thought would turn into a sharp disturbing noise and walk with me all the way to the dressing room shouting, 'It is over Gauti'". "It said the same: "It is over Gauti", he said. He scored 4154 runs in Test cricket from 58 matches, 5238 runs in ODIs and 932 in T20Is. The southpaw will always be remembered for his match-winning knocks in India's victorious campaign at the ICC World T20 in 2007 and the 2011 World Cup. Four years later, he starred again when India took on Sri Lanka in the final of the 50-over World Cup. His opening partnership with Virendar Sehwag was particularly successful, with the pair scoring 4,412 runs in 87 innings together, from 2004 to 2012. Their tally is the fifth best for any pair of openers in Test cricket.

Though Gambhir could not make a comeback to the India side after 2016, he continued to play domestic cricket for Delhi.

Before the 2018 IPL auctions, he chose to part ways with the franchise in order to make himself available for his home team Delhi.

"This may sound a little wishful but I've seen wishes come true". "Two World Cups, highest run-getter in the final of both of these games is the stuff dreams are made of". For a purist like me, it is a reward for somewhat knowing where my off stump was.
