"Representing India and DDCA has been a matter of great pride for me," Awana said. "I feel that it's the right time to pass the baton to the younger guys. I thank to all DDCA selectors and senior players for providing me the platform to show my skills."
Awana made his first-class debut against Himachal Pradesh in 2007. In the next match he took a hat-trick against Maharashtra.
The last time he played for Delhi at the senior level was in a Ranji Trophy game against Jharkhand in 2016.
Awana played in the Indian Premier League for Kings XI Punjab from 2012 to 2014 and took 39 wickets from 33 matches in this period. He picked up a hat-trick in the now defunct Champions League T20 against Chennai Super Kings.
