Former all-rounder Yusuf Pathan, who was part of two World Cup winning India teams, announced his retirement from all forms of the game Friday.

The big-hitting 38-year old played 57 one-dayers and 22 Twenty20s for India after beginning his career in the shadow of younger brother and Test bowler Irfan Pathan.

Both the Pathan brothers were part of the victorious India team at the 2007 World T20 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Four years later, Yusuf was part of Dhoni's team who won the 50-overs World Cup on home soil.

Yusuf last played for India in a Twenty20 match in 2012 but his power-hitting and crafty off-spin made him an asset in the Indian Premier League.

He was part of the Rajasthan Royals team who won the inaugural IPL title under Shane Warne in 2008.

Earlier Friday, seamer Vinay Kumar, 37, also quit the game having played one Rest and 40 limited-overs matches for India.
