Former Indian all-rounder Stuart Binny has surprisingly announced his retirement from all forms of cricket at the age of 37 and he represented India in all the formats. Binny was a medium pace all-rounder who swung the ball nicely and was a hard-hitting batsman in the middle order. He played 6 Tests, 14 One Days, and 3 T20 internationals for India in his international career.
Binny was part of the Indian test tour to England in 2014 and his 6 wickets for 4 runs in a low scoring ODI against Bangladesh will go down as the most memorable bowling spells in Indian history. He was part of the 2015 World cup squad as well and then lost his place in the Indian side after the arrival of all-rounder Hardik Pandya who showed more potential.
Stuart Binny Acknowledges The Support Of BCCI
Stuart Binny mentioned the role of BCCI in framing his cricket career internationally as well as in the domestic circuit for Karnataka. He was happy to have got the trust from them and added that the journey wouldn’t have started if BCCI did not support him.
“I would like to acknowledge the huge role that the BCCI played in my cricketing journey. Their support and faith over the years have been invaluable. My cricketing journey would not even have started had it not been for the Karnataka state and their support. It has been an honour to captain and win trophies with my state.” Stuart Binny’s statement read on Twitter
