The highly-anticipated T20I World Cup 2022 is set to begin at the conclusion of the proceeding week (October 16). The mega ICC event will be held in Australia, with as many as 16 top international teams participating. Team India will be battling against Pakistan in their opening encounter of the competition on October 23.
Senior players retiring after the end of an ICC tournament has been a trend. We have witnessed multiple top Cricketers calling it an end to their glorious careers, especially after winning the title. In this article, We will have a look at the players who might announce retirement after the end of the T20 World Cup 2022.
Four players who are likely to consider retiring after the upcoming T20 World Cup:
- Shakib Al Hasan
Hasan, 35, was recently appointed as the captain of Bangladesh in limited-overs cricket. The all-rounder has represented the national side in as many as a hundred T20 internationals. He has possibly been the most celebrated cricketer in the history of Bangladesh cricket.
- Ravi Ashwin
Ashwin, 36, is one of the few all-format players in the country at the moment. The right-arm off-spin bowler has featured in more than 250 international games for India across formats. Ashwin will be playing his fourth consecutive T20 World Cup later this month in Australia.
- Aaron Finch
Finch, 35, has been leading the Australian team in white-ball cricket for more than half a decade now. He recently announced his retirement from one-day internationals. The upcoming T20 World Cup, which will be played in Australia itself, is most likely to be Finch’s last international assignment.
- Dinesh Karthik
Karthik, 37, made a remarkable comeback in the Indian T20 team after multiple years due to an extraordinary outing in IPL 2022. The Indian team management has backed the wicketkeeper consistently since the recently-concluded Asia Cup. Karthik is now all set to be part of India’s starting 11 in the mega event.
