India Test batsman Rahul Dravid has retired from "domestic and first class" cricket.
The legendary ex-captain, nicknamed "The Wall" for his resilient batting style, scored 13,288 runs in 164 Tests since his 1996 debut, averaging 52.
He also holds the world record of 210 outfield Test catches, but the 39-year-old confessed at a Bangalore press conference on Friday that age has become a barrier.
Dravid said: "It's time to move on. Once I was like every other boy in India with a dream to play for my country.
"I have had a wonderful time. Now it's time for a new generation of young players to take it forward and make history.
Dravid retired from one-day cricket in September last year, but he will continue to play in the Indian Premier League for the Rajasthan Royals.
His retirement comes at a time when India are smarting from two consecutive Test whitewashes. They were the number one Test-ranked side before their 4-0 defeat in England, and that was followed by a loss by the same scoreline in Australia.
Scorer of 36 Test centuries, his brilliance was invariably overlooked in favour of the nation's star sportsman Sachin Tendulkar.
To herald his exit from cricket's most testing format, here's a gallery of Dravid’s glittering career at the crease:
