Shreevats Goswami scored 3019 runs in 61 First Class matches at an average of 32.46, including four tons and 17 half-centuries. In the Indian Premier League, Goswami played for four different franchises from 2008 to 2021. He played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Kolkata Knight Riders, the Rajasthan Royals, and the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Shreevats was named the Emerging Player of the tournament in the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League in 2008 while representing RCB. However, he doesn't have good stats of playing in IPL.

He was also part of the Indian team that won the 2008 U-19 World Cup under Virat Kohli. He didn't mention whether he will play the List-A and T20 games from now on.

"Announcing my retirement from first-class cricket. It has been an incredible journey on the cricket field, and it feels like the right time to call it off. It has been an honor and privilege to play this beautiful game for as long as I did, as well as represent various teams and IPL franchises," wrote Goswami on X.

"I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my teammates, coaches, CAB, the BCCI, and everyone who supported me throughout my career. I am also grateful to my family, who have been a pillar of strength for me throughout my cricketing journey. Cricket has given me countless memories and lifelong friendships to cherish," he added.
