Cricket is always in veins of many cricket enthusiasts. They might not be watching it regularly, but they aware well aware about every latest happening in the cricket world. There are a number of players who have already contributed their hearts in the field of cricket and they are also on a tender age which is demanding retirement.
The poster-boy of the Indian Cricket team for over a decade now, there is not much that Dhoni hasn’t achieved. He has won all the major trophies available across the various formats and has almost amassed 10,000 ODI runs in his illustrious career. He might have slowed down in the past couple of years but his inputs and game reading ability would be highly beneficial for India in the 2019 World Cup.
The swashbuckling and flamboyant opener is revered around the globe for his top-order exploits, especially in the T20 format. Gayle, who would be 39 by time WC comes around, has to be at his best if the team has to achieve anything big in the tournament.
AB De Villiers
Popularly known as Mr. 360, De Villiers is known for his ability to hit the ball to any part of the ground. With an average of over 53 and SR of 101, AB is one of the best in the game today but with injury issues in the recent past, 2019 WC could well be his last chance to win any silverware.
The batting mainstay of the New Zealand team, Taylor has scored the most ODI centuries for the Kiwis and might be looking at to improve his rather modest WC record over the years by having a major contribution for his team in the tournament.
With recurring injuries in the past few years, it is evident that Dale is nearing the end of his playing career. However, Dale is still expected to lead the South African bowling line up at the next year’s world cup which could be the last tournament he plays before hanging his boots for good.
