Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the Indian team won the Under-19 World Cup 2008 title. Saurabh Tiwari was also included in the team that won the title. But now he has announced his retirement from professional cricket. 34 year old Saurabh will play his last match for Jharkhand. He started playing cricket at the age of 11. He made his debut in first class matches in the 2006–07 Ranji Trophy season. Jharkhand team could not perform well in Ranji Trophy 2024. The team has won only one match so far. For this reason the team is out of the race for the quarter finals.

Said this big thing on retirement

According to the report of EPSNcricinfo, Saurabh Tiwari said that it is a bit difficult to say goodbye to this journey. But I am also sure that this is the right time for it. I think if you are not in the national team and IPL, it is better to free up a place in the state team for a young player. The youth are getting a lot. There are less possibilities in our Test team, that is why I am taking this decision.

You can see my record in Ranji and last domestic season. It’s always asked what I’m going to do next and right now I just know that cricket is the only thing I know so I’m going to stick to the game. I have also received offers from politics but I have not thought about it.

Such was the career

Saurabh Tiwari played his first first class match in the year 2006. So far he has scored 8030 runs in 115 matches, which includes 22 centuries. Apart from this, he has scored 4050 runs in 116 List-A matches at an average of 46.55, which includes 6 centuries. He has also played three ODI matches for the Indian team, in which he could score only 49 runs.

So many matches played in IPL

Saurabh Tiwari’s IPL career was full of ups and downs. He has played cricket in IPL for Mumbai Indians, RCB, Delhi Daredevils and Rising Pune Super Giants. Tiwari has scored 1494 runs in 93 IPL matches at an average of 28.73, which includes 8 half-centuries. During this period his strike rate has been 120.10.
