Karuna Jain says she’s quitting all formats

In women’s ODIs, the wicketkeeper-batter ends with the third-highest number of dismissals for India behind the stumps.
Karuna Jain, a former India wicketkeeper and batter, has declared their retirement from across all forms of cricket. Between 2004 and 2014, she participated in nine T20Is, five Tests, and 44 ODIs for India.

Jain, 36, announced his departure from all kinds of cricket in a statement on Instagram, writing, “With a lot of glad and fulfilled emotions, I am capable of making this news and going forward to give back to the game.”
I would want to use this time to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me during my cricket career, including all of my coaches, support staff, and team members.

They have all given me unique lessons about the game and life that have shaped me into the player and person I am today. Without everyone who helped me through my highs and lows, I would have not been able to experience this beautiful adventure.

Jain became became the fifth Indian woman to reach fifty on her ODI debut when she hit an unbeaten 68 against the West Indies at Lucknow in 2004. After Reshma Gandhi (104*) and Anju Jain (84*), it is still the third-highest run in women’s ODIs by a wicketkeeper-batter on their debut.

Jain added, “My family was the largest encouragement and my brother was a cricketer too, which made it easy and demanding for me to embrace the game and offer the finest in every situation where I stepped into the fields. Because to their unwavering support and selfless sacrifices, I was able to play the sport and participate for a very long period.
