On June 3, Monday, the 39-year-old former India batsman and only World Cup player from Pune, Kedar Jadhav, revealed on social media that he’s retiring from all forms of cricket.

In response to Jadhav’s announcement, Punit Balan, the owner of the Kolhapur franchise, stated: “I am sure his decision is due to personal reasons only. There was nothing wrong between him and our team or with MCA. But since his phone is switched off, I have not managed to speak to him.”
