Indian domestic player Rajat Bhatia has brought down the curtains to his career which lasted for 20 years.
Indian domestic cricket player Rajat Bhatia begun his playing career with Tamil Nadu in 2003 to 2004. Yet, he spent most of his time playing for Delhi which was his birthplace and his homeland. In Delhi, he played cricket for the Delhi Capitals which is an active team in the IPL.
As per Bhatia, ‘I had decided last year only (about retirement). I was not playing domestic cricket here and then got to do commentary. Then I was playing as a professional in Bangladesh but this year they stopped hiring professionals and then coronavirus happened. Therefore, I thought it was time to retire'.
Bhatia may have not been given a chance to play for the Indian national team but he says that he has no regrets about it. After having said such, he then shared his career’s top moments. He says, ‘The highs would surely be winning the Ranji Trophy for Delhi (2007-08), the IPL in 2012 (with KKR) and personally getting Sachin Tendulkar out thrice in the IPL, which I was able to play for 10 years. That is something I would always remember’.
