Five Cricketers Who Could Announce Their Retirement in 2020
Early this year, the veteran Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan announced retirement from all the forms of international cricket. Blessed with the rare talent of the seam and swing bowling, Pathan had his international career down the hill early in his cricket life. However, he kept participating in the domestic games and the Indian Premier League (IPL).
On the other hand, the veteran batter, Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement during the coveted World Cup 2019. And even Yuvraj went through the sad notion of not being able to play in international cricket before he announced the retirement.
However, star cricketers leave a big void by announcing retirement in the respective teams they were the part of.
Nevertheless, below is the list of the five cricketers who are most likely to retire this year:

After the miserable run in the ICC’s premier tournament, Steyn suffered several injuries.
While Steyn is upping his game in the leagues, he has been out of the team for the major part of the important series played by South Africa. With him being in and out of the team, it is possible for the cricketer to announce retirement this year.
In the meantime, the Proteas pacer has been a part of a total of 262 international matches to bag near 700 wickets.
