“There’s a few reasons for it. It’s not as simple as ‘okay I’m not going to play’. I do feel my recovery is taking longer. I’m putting my 3-year-old son at risk by traveling so much with him, that’s something I have to take into account. I think my body is wearing down. My knee was really hurting today today and I am not saying that’s the reason we lost but I do think that it is taking time to recover as I am getting older”

Wishes have poured in from all across as she announced her plans to discontinue playing the sport. 

Actors Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor posted on social media, wishing her luck.

“Beyond this season, I don’t feel my body doing it. It’s beat”
