While the COVID-19 pandemic has disturbed enough the world, many cricket fans were eagerly waiting for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia. But the International Cricket Council (ICC) has recently postponed the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, India and Australia will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 and ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 respectively.
Many fans were expecting to see some of the legendary cricketers for the last time in international cricket during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020. But while the tournament has been postponed, and the players now have to wait more than a year for the next ICC tournament, these legendary cricketers are doubtful to return in the international cricket again.
Here we are talking about the top five cricketers who can retire from international cricket soon after the postponement of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020
The 39-year-old former Indian World T20 and World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni hasn’t played a recognised cricket match for more than a year. The wicket-keeper batsman played his last match on 10th July 2019 during the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. After that match, he has continuously made himself unavailable for the national team selection but never clarified his future in international cricket yet. As the IPL 2020 has been postponed from March to September due to the coronavirus pandemic, Dhoni has to wait for a longer period to return on the cricket field.
While Dhoni is set to lead again the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2020, the cricket world is eagerly waiting to see him again on the cricket field. His performances in the IPL 2020 can reveal his mind about the future of his international career. But while the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 has been postponed, and India will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in October-November 2021, the cricket world is highly doubtful on Dhoni’s any future appearance for the Indian team.
