World Cup at the door. The rest is not too long. After this tournament, many star players announced the farewell to international cricket. Let's take a look at the names of some players who have already announced their retirement:
Chris Gayle (West Indies) Chris Gayle returns to ODIs in February A few days back, in the series against England, he announced that the World Cup will be his last ODI tournament. He scored 424 runs in England's two innings and four half-centuries in two half-centuries. After such a wonderful performance, why did he come to the discussion? If you can maintain this feat in the upcoming World Cup, then the World Twenty20 title will give Gayle the West Indies for the first time since 1979.
JP Duminy (South Africa)
JP Duminy will not be seen in the one-day international match after the World Cup. The South African all-rounder announced that he will continue the international T20. After being out of the field for several months due to an injury, he announced in March that he will not play another one-day international after the World Cup. Duminy made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in Colombo. He has suffered a series of injuries throughout the career. Despite this, one of the country's top 10 scorers in ODIs, with 5 47, was a Duminy. He is in eighth position on the list of 200 ODIs for South Africa.
Imran Tahir (South Africa)
Imran Tahir does not play ODIs after the upcoming World Cup But he would like to continue the international T-Twenty. He is most comfortable in 20-over cricket.
Shoaib Malik (Pakistan)
Expert spinner, great fielder and successful captain Shoaib Malik has been playing for Pakistan team for a long time. The reliable cricketer played 283 ODIs since his debut in 1999, scored 7481 runs. He is in fifth place in the list of Pakistan's highest run-scorer in ODIs. He also took 156 wickets and 96 catches with the ball. Last year in Zimbabwe last year, Pakistan announced the end of the two-decade one-day internationals in the upcoming World Cup.
Dale Stein (South Africa)
He has not been following the shoulder injury for several days. Without the problem, he would have lived one of the world's most dynamic and dreaded bowlers.
Not yet fully fit before the upcoming World Cup, Stein is not fit. Nevertheless, Protea's hopes will be one of the symbols of hope. Last year in July announced that he will retire after the World Cup.
