Former India quick R Vinay Kumar retires from first-class and international cricket



Former Karnataka captain finished with 504 first-class wickets, including a record 442 in the Ranji Trophy

R Vinay Kumar, the former India seamer, has announced his retirement from first-class and international cricket, bringing the curtain down on a first-class career that spanned 16 years and made him a domestic giant. He played most of those years for Karnataka, before retiring after a season with new entrants Puducherry.

Vinay finished with 504 first-class wickets in 139 matches, 442 of them in the Ranji Trophy – the most among fast bowlers and fourth-highest overall, after Rajinder Goel (637), S Venkataraghavan (530) and his former Karnataka captain Sunil Joshi (479).
