Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha has now announced his retirement from all formats of cricket.


Wicketkeeper Naman Ojha, who has played four international matches on behalf of the Indian team, has said goodbye to cricket due to backache and not being able to give time to the family.


He greeted the pitch with his father Vinay Kumar Ojha before retiring at Holkar Stadium in Indore. Naman holds the record for the most number of wickets (351) as a wicketkeeper in the Ranji Trophy. However, this Indian wicketkeeper's dream of playing a cricketer with the legendary player Sachin Tendulkar has remained unfulfilled. Naman Ojha's dream could not be fulfilled by Sachin's retirement.

Naman Ojha has scored 9753 runs in 143 matches of first-class cricket at an average of 41.67. As a wicketkeeper in first-class cricket, Naman Ojha has taken 471 victims including 54 stumpings. He has played in the IPL for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals, and Delhi Daredevils.
