New Delhi, December 4: Indian cricketer and Delhi captain Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.

The 37-year-old opening batsman, who represented India in 58 Tests, 147 ODIs and 37 T20Is, made the announcement through his Twitter handle.

“The most difficult decisions are often taken with the heaviest of hearts. And with one heavy heart, I’ve decided to make an announcement that I’ve dreaded all my life,” Gambhir wrote.

The 37-year-old, in a video message on his social media pages, said the Ranji Trophy game against Andhra Pradesh starting Thursday will be his last competitive match. The aggressive opener was India’s top-scorer in the finals of the 2007 World T20 in South Africa and the 2011 ODI World Cup, both of which the country won.
