Former India seamer, R. Vinay Kumar, has announced retirement from all forms of the game. One of the stalwarts of Karnataka cricket, Vinay’s first-class career spanned for 16 years and last season, he moved to Puducherry.

In his long career, Vinay scalped 504 first-class wickets in 139 matches. Of the total tally, 442 wickets were in the Ranji Trophy.

Even though, he failed to extend his international career, Vinay guided Karnataka to double-treble from 2013 to 2015 – where the team won Vijay Hazare Trophy, Ranji Trophy and Irani Cup in his captaincy. He was also part of various IPL franchises in his long and illustrious career.
