Mumbai: Veteran Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayar has retired from all forms of cricket.

"I'm absolutely satisfied... there are so many cricketers out there who would want to be in the position I am today. I can only be grateful and thankful to have had the opportunity to play for this long... absolutely no regrets...I'm a happy man," Nayar told PTI on Wednesday.

Nayar represented India in only three ODIs but his record as a first-class player is more promising.
