Players who could retire after T20 World Cup

The likes of Matthew Wade, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock, and Mohammad Nabi might also be playing their last T20 World Cup.

The T20 World Cup 2024 could be the final one of this generation’s finest talents. While someone like David Warner has already announced that this is his last international assignment, it is expected that top stars like Rohit Sharma and Kane Williamson might also call time from the T20 format soon after the conclusion of the tournament. Let us take a look at top 5 veteran who might be playing their last T20 World Cup.

Legends who might play their last T20 World Cup

Rohit Sharma

Virat Kohli

Kane Williamson

Shakib al Hasan

Andre Russell

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma is arguably one of the first names that comes to mind in this aspect. The opening batter hasn’t been productive in T20 World Cups and he will be 39 by the time the next T20 World Cup. The Indian skipper will want to win the upcoming marquee event to probably end his T20 career on a high note.

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has finished as the highest run-getter in the last 3 out of 4 World Cups and is still India’s best batter. Despite his fitness level and consistency, Kohli strike-rate criticism has been a constant chatter. The senior batter could give up T20Is soon to prolong his Test and ODI career.

Kane Williamson

The legendary New Zealand batter, Kane Williamson has had a tough time in the recent past owing to his injury. His fitness issues might force him to leave one format in the near future. Williamson is an asset to the Test and ODI teams and many might argue that those are the formats that suit his style of play the most.

Shakib al Hasan

Former Bangladesh skipper, Shakib al Hasan might also hang his boots soon. Shakib will also turn 39 by the time the next World Cup comes and it’s unlikely to see him play all three formats.

Andre Russell

West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell has been a valued member of the Men in Maroon T20 side, especially in ICC events. At 36, one might argue that for how long Russell can continue given the number of young power-hitters West Indies keeps producing every year.
