“I would like to inform you about my decision to retire from Indian hockey team. The past couple of months have undoubtedly been the best days of my life. Standing on the podium in Tokyo along with my teammates with whom I have shared some of the most incredible experiences of my life was a feeling I will cherish forever,” Rupinder wrote in a statement posted on his official Twitter handle.

“I believe it is time for me to make way for young and talented players to experience every great joy I have felt in these last 13 years of representing India.” The 30-year-old Rupinder, regarded as one of the best drag-flickers of the country, represented India in 223 matches.

Rupinder was an integral part of the Indian hockey team that won a bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics this year, ending a 41-year-old medal drought for the eight-time Olympic champions.
