3 Indian Players who might announce T20I retirement after T20 World Cup 2024


3 Indian Players who might retire after the T20 World Cup 2024

Team India have reached the final of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2024. They have been undefeated in the tournament so far and will be looking to win the title. The Indian team have not won an ICC event since 2013, and they have lost a number of multiple knockout games during this period.

Meanwhile, India will face England in the semifinal on Thursday at Providence Stadium, Guyana, and if they win this match, they will play the third final overall. India are favourites to win the game against England, but this English team beat India in the semi-final of the 2022 edition. Meanwhile, this tournament could be the last tournament for some of the Indian players. Here we talk about three Indian players who might retire from T20Is after the T20 World Cup 2024.

3. Yuzvendra Chahal

The veteran leg-spinner is currently the leading wicket-taker for India in the shorter format of the game. He has taken 96 wickets in 80 T20Is at an economy rate of 8.19. He is part of the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup 2024, but he hasn’t played a game yet, and it looks like he might not get a game. Chahal played his last T20I for India in January 2023, around 16 months ago. He wasn’t selected for the coming series against Zimbabwe. So it looks like the Indian management is looking past him, and with not much opportunity, he might hang his boots in T20 internationals.

2. Virat Kohli

The former Indian captain Virat Kohli is without a doubt the best batter in modern-day cricket. His numbers speak for themselves across formats. He is one of the leading scorers in T20Is. But his current form in the T20 World Cup 2024 has been below par. He has only scored 65 runs in six innings, including two ducks. If somehow he fails to deliver in knockouts, there are big chances that Virat will end his T20I career and focus on the other two formats.

1. Rohit Sharma

The Indian captain is at the end of his career. Rohit Sharma, who is currently 37 years old, is still very good in this format, but after the T20 World Cup 2024, he might focus on ODIs and Tests. Rohit will be 39-40 during the 2026 T20 World Cup, so it might be difficult for him to play in all three formats. So despite his ability, we might see him retiring from T20Is. Already, he plays very few bilateral T20I series, so he might retire.
