Ishwar Pandey, a tall fast bowler best known for his time playing for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, announced his retirement from the sport in a message posted on Instagram on Tuesday.

Ishwar participated in the IPL for CSK, Rising Pune Supergiants, and Pune Warriors, taking 18 wickets in 25 games. In an interview with Dainik Bhaskar, Ishwar asserted that the result would have been different if MS Dhoni had given him an opportunity.

“Had Dhoni given me a chance my career would have been something else. I was 23-24 year old at that time and my fitness was great. Had Dhoni given me a chance to play for India and if I had performed then my career would have been different,” Ishwar was quoted as saying by Dainik Bhaskar.
