Ahmedabad/IBNS: Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel on Wednesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.

"Today, I announce my retirement from all forms of cricket, and as I bring down the curtains on this 18-year old cricketing journey, I feel heavier with gratitude towards many. The BCCI showed a generous amount of confidence and faith in a 17-year old boy to play for India. I have enormous gratitude towards them for being a guiding force and hand holding me, in the formative years of my young career," wrote Patel on Twitter.

"I am full of gratitude to The Gujarat Cricket Association, my home, for solidly rallying around me throughout my journey, and the leadership role conferred upon me couldn't have been more joyous and fulfilling than our team winning all formats of the game," he added.

Patel, a southpaw, made his international debut in 2002 under then skipper Sourav Ganguly.

He scored 934 runs in 25 Tests while 736 runs in 38 One Day Internationals (ODIs).
