International cricket is finally getting prepared for its first T20 World Cup since the 2016 edition which was held in India. The mega event, which was scheduled for last year in Australia had to be postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While there are still doubts over the venue of the tournament, it is confirmed that the event will happen in October-November in either India or any other venue.
While the fans would be delighted to see all the cricketing superstars back at the biggest stage once again, they might well be watching few players playing their last World Cup. While there is another T20 WC in 2022, the teams are expected to go with those players next year who will also be in their plans for 2023 ODI World Cup. Check out the list of five players who might hang up their boots after this year’s marquee event.
1. Imran Tahir
The leg-spinner has been a great servant for South African cricket and has been phenomenal for them over the years. Tahir has played 38 T20Is for the country and has scalped 63 wickets at an impressive economy of 6.73 in his illustrious career. While he is a free-agent right now, Graeme Smith had hinted at the possible inclusion of Tahir for the upcoming T20 WC. However, the 42-year-old might end his international career post that, with Proteas undergoing a transition.
