”I’m grateful to the coaches who encouraged me, to the selectors who put their faith in me. To the friends who shared my cricketing journey with overwhelming pride, to the colleagues who put their hearts out on the battlefield with me. To my captains who entrusted me. None of this would have been possible had it not been for my family, I stepped out on the field every day thinking about them. It has given me tremendous joy and pride to have represented my country at the highest international level.” said Binny in a statement when he announced his retirement as per PTI.
In domestic cricket, he first represented his native state Karnataka and then represented Nagaland during his peak stage.
