India was always blessed to have huge reserves of potential when it comes to spin bowling, both traditionally and contemporarily. Today, India has Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja in the Test line-up and Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav in white-ball cricket.


Since Anil Kumble hung up his boots and Harbhajan Singh went out for favour, it was the likes of Amit Mishra and Pragyan Ojha who helped the Indian team during the transition phase.

The Hyderabad left-arm spinner clinched over a hundred wickets in his brief Test career. Since making his debut for India in ODIs back in 2008 season, Ojha was once a regular feature in all formats of the game for India, under the leadership of MS Dhoni.


Further, Ojha was also part of IPL winning teams during his stint at Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians, along with Rohit Sharma. However, the off-spinner could not make the cut into the Indian side after the famous Sachin Tendulkar-farewell Test match, back in 2013.
It was on Friday when the 33-year-old finally decided to call it quits from all forms of cricket with immediate effect.

As soon as the news broke, former legendary cricketers as well as the present ones, poured in their wishes, bidding farewell to the ex-Indian international.

Here’s how they paid their tribute to the career of Pragyan Ojha:
