ICC World Cup 2019: Three Indians from the current squad who might play their last tournament
With the much-awaited event in the cricketing world is just around the corner and the teams have started the preparations to crack the code to touch the trophy. The upcoming World Cup will be held in England and starts from May 30.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced India’s 15-member squad for the World Cup. As expected, Virat Kohli will lead the team. The Indian selectors surprised everyone by removing Ambati Rayudu from the squad.
When India last time won the World Cup, India’s greatest cricketers, Sachin Tendulkar played his last World Cup. While no one bid adieu to cricket after the 2015 World Cup, this year is going to be quite an emotional for the cricket fans as one of the legends of cricket game will play his last World Cup tournament. Along with him, a couple of players will be playing their last World Cup.
Here are the three Indian players who might play their last tournament:
#3 Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is one of the consistent players for India in the limited-overs cricket. When it comes to the ICC tournament, he never fails to disappoint his fans. He was the highest run-scorer in both the last editions of Champions Trophy and the highest run-scorer for India in the 2015 World Cup as well.
So, we can expect some runs from his bat during the upcoming edition of World Cup. Even though it will be his second World Cup, it will also be his last World Cup. He has been in tremendous form but the age factor might not allow him to play the next tournament.
He is currently 33 years old and will turn 37 in 2023. He might not remain as the same batsman in 2023. Moreover, with the likes of Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill impressing the selectors, they might replace the left-handed opener after the 2019 World Cup.
