India's Mohd Kaif announced his retirement from all forms of the game yesterday, exactly 16 years after he combined with Yuvraj Singh to script one of India's most memorable ODI triumphs at the hallowed turf of Lord's.

Kaif, 37, posted an emotional message on his twitter page to bid adieu to the game, almost 12 years after he last played for the Indian team. "It made sense to do so on July 13. Each of our professional lives are defined by one moment more than any other, 16 years ago today, July 13, 2002 was that moment for me... It seems apt to bid goodbye on this day," Kaif said. He played 13 Tests and 125 ODIs and will always be remembered for his 87 at the Lord's during the NatWest Series final.
