At the age of 17, Patel made his international debut in an away Test series against England in 2002 and went on to represent India in 25 matches in the longest format. He scored 934 runs at an average of 31.13.

"Today I announce my retirement from all forms of cricket, and as I bring down the curtains on this 18 year old cricketing journey, I feel heavier with gratitude towards many. The BCCI showed a generous amount of confidence and faith in a 17 year old boy to play for India. I have enormous gratitude towards them for being a guiding force and hand holding me, in the formative years of my young career," Patel said in his long Twitter post.

"I am full of gratitude to The Gujarat Cricket Association, my home, for solidly rallying around me throughout my journey, and the leadership role conferred upon me couldn't have been more joyous and fulfilling than our team winning all formats of the game," he added in his post. 

Looking into his other laurels, Patel has played 38 ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals for India. He last wore Indian jersey in 2018 during a Test match against South Africa in Johannesburg. He was a stalwart in Indian domestic cricket and scored over 11,000 runs in 194 first-class games, with 27 centuries and 67 half-centuries.
