Players Who Might Retire From T20 And ODI After T20I WC 2022 And ODI WC 2023



The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is going to start in Australia from 16 October. The final of this tournament will be played on November 13. The next T20 World Cup is to be played in 2024, but the ODI World Cup will be played in the next year i.e. 2023. In such a situation, many veteran players can say goodbye to the T20 format to give a chance to the ODI World Cup and the youth.

1) Mohammad Nabi- Mohammad Nabi, a 37-year-old player from Afghanistan, can retire after the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Captain Nabi has played a total of 101 T20 International matches so far. All-rounder Nabi scored 1669 runs in the format at a strike rate of 140.37 and also has 83 wickets to his name with an economy of 7.30. He has been excellent for the team over the years. Nabi is currently number 1 in the rankings of T20 all-rounders. (AFP)

2) Aaron Finch- 35-year-old Aaron Finch of Australia is one of the legends of white-ball cricket. He gave the team its first success in the tournament last year. Finch made his national team debut in 2011 in a T20 International against England. Finch has played only five Tests so far and mainly plays limited overs cricket. Finch has recently retired from ODI cricket as well. In such a situation, it is expected that he can also say goodbye to the T20 format after the World Cup. (PIC: AFP)

3) David Warner – Aaron Finch’s partner David Warner has also turned 35 years old. Warner can also retire from the T20 format to give opportunities to the youth and focus on ODI-Test. Warner made his debut for the national team in 2009. The batsman showed a great game in the 2021 T20 World Cup after the terrible performance of IPL 2021. He was named ‘Player of the Tournament’ for his invaluable contribution with the bat. (PIC: AFP)


4) Tim Southee- New Zealand’s most powerful all-format bowler in the last few years, Tim Southee made his national team debut against England in 2008. The 33-year-old Southee is one of the best swinging ball bowlers. He is the third highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals. He has 114 wickets in 95 matches. His performance in the white ball in the recent past has not been anything special. In such a situation, he can say goodbye to the T20 format to focus on the longer format. (PIC: AP)


5) Shakib Al Hasan – Bangladesh’s most famous cricketer Shakib Al Hasan has had a stellar career for the subcontinent. He is one of the most accomplished all-rounders of the modern era. Shakib has scored 2000 runs in T20 Internationals and has taken 100 wickets. The 35-year-old all-rounder is at a stage where he needs to keep his body fit for important events. In such a situation, Shakib can focus his attention on red-ball cricket after the upcoming ICC event in Australia. (AFP)

6) Virat Kohli- India’s champion batsman Virat Kohli is the greatest batsman in all formats in the last decade with more than 23000 runs to his name in international cricket. According to experts, the stylish top-order batsman had been in poor form recently. However, his old form is visible back from the Asia Cup 2022. Virat Kohli may move away from T20 format to focus on next year’s ODI World Cup.(AP)

7) Rohit Sharma- India’s captain and gifted opener Rohit Sharma has a lot of grip in white ball cricket. However, for some time now, he is seen struggling with the bat. Rohit has played 128 matches for the national team in T20 Internationals, the most by any player at the international level. He has 3379 runs to his name. He has scored four centuries more than any other batsman in this entertaining format of the game. 35-year-old Rohit can retire from T20 format for 2023 by doing ODI world. (AP)

8) Martin Guptill- The 36-year-old Martin Guptill from New Zealand is one of the greatest names in the T20 format. The opener has performed brilliantly many times in his career, but has not won any major tournament. In such a situation, the T20 World Cup is going to be a very important tournament for the cricketer. He has 3497 runs in 121 T20 International matches at a strike rate of 135.80. His consistency has been an issue in recent times. In such a situation, this player can retire from T20 to focus more on ODI cricket. (AFP)

9) Ravichandran Ashwin- Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is 36 years old. Whenever it comes to T20 cricket, the spinner fails to become a star. However, he remains economical in T20 and that is why he is supported in the shortest format. Ashwin has played 59 T20 Internationals for India and has taken 66 wickets at an economy of 6.80. The next T20 World Cup is going to be held in 2024. In such a situation, he can say goodbye to this format to give a chance to the youth in the next edition (AFP)

10) Steve Smith – 33 years old Australian legend Steve Smith is a big name in Test cricket. He has not been able to do any big work in the T20 format. He has played 60 T20 Internationals for Australia. In this, he has scored 980 runs at an average of 25.78 and strike rate of 126.12. At the same time, in 87 Tests, he has scored 8161 runs at an average of 60.00. In such a situation, Smith can retire from the T20 format to focus his full attention on Test cricket. (AFP)
