Stuart Binny, the holder of best bowling figures by an Indian bowler in ODIs, announces retirement

Indian all-rounder Stuart Binny on Monday (August 30) announced retirement from all forms of the game. Binny, who represented India in 6 Tests, 14 ODIs and 3 T20Is, last played for the national team in the T20Is series against the Windies in 2016.

Binny, who made his international debut against the Kiwis, scored 230 runs and took 20 wickets in the ODIs. He still holds the record for the best bowling figures by an Indian bowler. During the 2nd ODI against Bangladesh in 2014, Binny returned with the figures of 4.4-2-4-6.

The right-handed batsman played his first Test against England. He scored 78 off 114 but the match ended in a draw. Binny scored 194 runs and scalped 3 wickets in 6 Test matches.

In IPL, he was a part of Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals.
