According to rumours, Stuart Binny has retired from all forms of cricket. A letter posted on social media indicated he has decided to retire from first-class and international cricket.
“Representing my country at the greatest international level has brought me immense delight and pride. I’d like to thank the BCCI for their support throughout my cricketing career. Their faith and support have been amazing. My cricketing journey would not have begun without the state of Karnataka’s backing. A privilege to lead and win prizes with my state,” it added.
He debuted for Karnataka in 2003/04. In 2014, he was selected for India’s ODI tour of New Zealand. On the tour, he made his ODI debut. On June 17, 2014, Binny took six wickets giving only four runs, beating Anil Kumble’s record. He made his Test debut against England in 2014 and his T20I debut against Zimbabwe in 2015.
“I wish Stuart Binny every success in his future endeavours. His career is long. Stuart has made a huge contribution to a competent first-class cricket set up. His contribution to the Karnataka State Cricket Association will be remembered forever. He has my best wishes,” BCCI President Sourav Ganguly remarked.
