Joginder Sharma, India’s ICC T20 World Cup 2007 hero, retires from professional cricket; Twitter hails him
On Friday, former Indian medium-pacer Joginder Sharma, who bowled the monumental match-winning final over in the ICC T20 World Cup 2007’s final clash versus arch-rival Pakistan, announced his retirement from professional cricket. The 39-year-old had represented India in four One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and as many Twenty20 International (T20Is) between 2004 and 2007, scalping five wickets. He also featured in domestic cricket for Haryana. Meanwhile, Twitter was all praise for him and his consequential cricketing career.
My journey from 2002-2017 has been the most wonderful years of my life, for it was an honour representing India at the highest level of the sport. To all my teammates, coaches, mentors and support staff: It has been an absolute privilege to have played with you all, and I thank you all for helping turn my dream into reality,” he said in a message on Twitter.
