New Delhi: Former Indian fast bowler Rudra Pratap Singh has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. 

Announcing the same on his official Twitter handle, the 32-year-old said that there is no easy way to say goodbye, but added that it is the right time to call it quits. 

"Today as I hang [up] my boots and call it a day I wish to remember and give thanks to each and everyone who made this journey possible," RP Singh wrote. 

"Even as I write this, there are conflicting emotions inside me. No matter how much one prepares for this day, there is no easy way to bid goodbye. But somewhere inside there is a voice that tells you - it's time. And that for me is today," he added. 

The pacer, who made his international debut during a one-day match against Zimbabwe in 2005, played a crucial role in India's title-clinching campaign at the 2007 T20 World Cup. 

Singh was the second highest wicket-taker of the prestigious tournament as he bagged a total of 12 wickets in seven matches with an economy rate of 6.33.
