Subramaniam Badrinath is all set to announce his retirement after completion of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2018. Badrinath skipped the 2017/18 domestic season for Hyderabad but did not announce his retirement then.

The gritty batsman did not play for Hyderabad in the entire season and that strongly hinted that he might call it quits sooner than later.

Now, he is set to make an official announcement on his retirement once the IPL season ends, as per reports.

The 37-year old is currently commentating in IPL and is also a renowned writer about the league at various platforms.

A veteran of cricket, Badrinath scored an impressive 10,245 runs in his 145 first-class matches. Whereas total runs of 4,164 in 144 List A contest is also extremely impressive. He has also participated in 142 T20s in which he has tallied 2,300 runs.

Badrinath’s international debut was in 2008 against Sri Lanka and two years late he made his Test debut against South Africa but could only bag one more Test cap to his name.

He played his last ODI match against West Indies in 2011, a comeback series for him after an impressive fourth season of IPL.

Subramaniam Badrinath will definitely retire as a legend in domestic platform who failed to make his mark at the international stage.
