7 Players Who Might Retire After The 2023 ODI World Cup

7 Players Who Might Retire After 2023 ODI World Cup

Some of our beloved stars are getting old, and just like every other World Cup, the 2023 ODI World Cup will mark the end of some of the most illustrious international careers. The 2023 Cricket World Cup will see these players battle it out for the one last time as everyone will be vying for the biggest prize in world cricket. This article will delve into the potential retirements of seven players who might hang up their boots after the 2023 ODI World Cup.

1. Mitchell Starc

There is a high chance that Mitchell Starc, the winner of the 2015 World Cup, 2021 T20 World Cup, and 2021-2023 World Test Championship, might retire after the 2023 ODI World Cup in India. Despite being only 33 years old, the Australian pacer has maintained his fitness by prioritizing international cricket over lucrative T20 leagues. However, in order to sustain his physical condition and continue playing in other formats, he will likely have to give up at least one format, and it seems probable that he will retire from One Day Internationals (ODIs).

2. Trent Boult

The 33-year-old Kiwi left-arm pacer, Trent Boult, decided to forego New Zealand’s central contract last year in order to participate in T20 leagues. While he has assured his availability for New Zealand whenever required, the 2023 ODI World Cup will mark his return to the One Day format after a considerable period of time. However, Boult has expressed his intention to prioritize playing in various leagues, indicating that he may have to give up at least one format following the 2023 ODI World Cup.

3. Faf Du Plessis

Faf du Plessis is currently in great touch and will be a valuable asset for South Africa going into the 2023 ODI World Cup. The 38-year-old Faf is one of the fittest cricketers in the world right now, and he possesses the physical prowess to continue playing for at least another five years. However, it’s about time, and we should be mentally prepared for his retirement from International cricket after the World Cup in India.

4. Mushfiqur Rahim

Mushfiqur Rahim, one of Bangladesh’s most celebrated players, is poised to retire from cricket following the 2023 World Cup in India. He has played a massive role in Bangladesh’s remarkable ascent from the bottom to becoming one of the top white-ball teams. Undoubtedly, bidding farewell to their beloved cricketer will be a challenging task for passionate Bangladeshi fans.

5. David Warner

David Warner announced that he will retire from ODIs after the 2023 ODI World Cup, followed by his retirement from Tests in December. Finally, he intends to conclude his career by retiring from T20 Internationals after the 2024 T20 World Cup, which will be held in the USA and West Indies.

6. Angelo Mathews

Angelo Mathews, the 36-year-old all-rounder from Sri Lanka and the 2014 T20 World Cup winner, is likely to retire from ODIs after the World Cup in India. Having represented Sri Lanka in 405 international matches, Mathews will aim to conclude his career on a high note.

7. Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan, the Indian cricketer, is potentially considering retirement after the upcoming World Cup. It appears challenging for him to secure a position in India’s white-ball side due to the presence of several young players, such as Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, and Ruturaj Gaikwad, vying for the opening slot.

All these cricketers have represented their countries with honor and pride. Despite experiencing ups and downs throughout their careers as they approach retirement, we must celebrate their remarkable achievements. The 2023 ODI World Cup will mark the end of an era, but it will also herald the beginning of new talents and the enduring allure of the sport.
