Flamboyant India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja announced his retirement from T20 Internationals on Sunday, joining his illustrious teammates Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in bidding adieu to the format a day after winning the World Cup.

India pipped South Africa by seven runs in the final here on Saturday to clinch their second T20 World Cup title.

The triumph was followed by star batter Kohli and skipper Rohit announcing their retirement from T20Is, calling it the perfect time to pass the baton to the younger crop of players.

On Sunday, it was Jadeja’s turn and the 35-year-old took to Instagram to announce his retirement from T20Is. He will continue to play ODIs and Tests.

“With a heart full of gratitude, I bid farewell to T20 internationals,” Jadeja wrote underneath a picture of him holding the trophy.

“Like a steadfast horse galloping with pride, I’ve always given my best for my country and will continue to do so in other formats,” added Jadeja.
