It is a well-said proverb that – “Legends are Born Once in a While”. This is why cricket never had batsmen like Sunil Gavaskar, Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar, and Brian Lara. We are going to witness the retirement on some of the classy and legendary players after the cricket world cup 2019 gets over. A number of players might announce their retirement soon after and some might wait for the last series.
LISTS OF LEGENDARY BATSMEN WHO WILL RETIRE CRICKET WORLD CUP IN 2019
As expected, there are a few batsmen who might announce their retirements after the biggest cricketing extravaganza gets over in the month of July. There are chances that they can announce their retirements in between the world cup season as well. Let’s see who all are on this list.
The Flamboyant West Indies Batsman will most probably be playing his last major tournament at the ICC CWC 2019. Having played International cricket for a long time now, Gyle would be 39 by the time World Cup comes around and would be looking to have one final hurray before bowing out. You can follow live scores online.
Ross Taylor has been a part of New Zealand for a long time now and would be staring down at possibly his last major cricketing tournament with CWC 2019 before retiring from the sport. Taylor has been one of the top players across the world for a long time now and would be looking to bow out in style with the trophy.
Having retired from Test Cricket in 2017 and give up captaincy to prolong his limited-overs career, Dhoni has been a leader for India for over a decade now and would be staring down at retirement after the 2019 cricket world cup by trying to win the trophy once again after lifting it back in 2011 as a captain.
AB DE VILLIERS
De Villiers has been struggling with injuries for a long time now and his time as a cricketer might just be over after the CWC 2019 if his injury record doesn’t record. Even without a major trophy, De Villiers will go down as one of the true gentlemen of the sport.
Out of the Indian team for over a year now, Yuvraj would be looking to make a comeback to the team in time for the World Cup, having played a stellar tournament when India won it in 2011. You can watch his highlights all across the internet. The WC 2019 might just be his last tournament ever for India.
