Quite a few senior pros of Indian Cricket Team might end their T20I career this year.

Team India played 31 T20I matches between ICC T20 World Cup 2021 and 2022. After a disappointing exit from the semi-finals in 2022, Indian team management showed trust in young players. A few senior players were dropped and a few were rested for good 14-15 months from the T20I bilateral series. This gave a clear sign of transition in India’s T20I squad. Big names like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ravi Ashwin stayed away from T20Is.

These big names in the current Indian setup are likely to end their T20I career before or after the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in West Indies and USA. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s big break gave a big hint that these two will say goodbye to T20I cricket after the T20 World Cup 2024 in June. Along with Virat and Rohit, there are a few other big names who are likely to announce their retirement after the T20 World Cup. Let’s have a look at the list of star Indian cricketers.

After commentary, wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik has recently begun coaching with his first stint with England Lions. Dinesh’s tenure with England Lions may be just for nine days but this has given a clear sign of his international future. Dinesh Karthik might announce retirement from T20I cricket this year. He has played 60 T20I games for India and scored 686 so far. He made his debut in India’s first-ever T20I game and played his last in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia against Bangladesh.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma stayed away from T20Is for 14 months after the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. Rohit Sharma is almost at the end of his T20I career and is likely to announce his retirement from this format of the game in 2024. The upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024 could be his last international T20I assignment for India. Rohit is currently the second-highest run-scorer in T20Is for India, so far he has scored 3853 runs in 141 innings.

India’s chase master Virat Kohli may also join the list of probable T20I retirements after the end of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in West Indies and USA. Virat Kohli also stayed away from T20Is along with Rohit Sharma. Virat has been away from India’s T20I setup since the semi-final loss against England in the T20 World Cup in 2022. Virat Kohli is likely to sign off as the leading run-scorer for India in T20Is. Virat has scored 4008 runs in 115 matches so far.

4. Ravi Ashwin :

Off-spinner Ravi Ashwin looks almost out of scheme of things for India’s T20I side. Ashwin made his comeback in the previous two ICC T20 World Cup events but he failed be a constant member of India’s T20I playing XI. Ravichandran Ashwin is also away from T20Is after India’s semi-finals exit in the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. Ashwin is also likely to retire from this format of the game in this calendar year.

5. Ravindra Jadeja :

India’s ace spin-bowling all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is still an asset for Indian team. Ravindra Jadeja has kept his consistency going across all formats of the game. Jadeja is unlikely to continue after the T20 World Cup 2024. Indian camp currently have several options available in the spin bowling department and management might stick with youngsters for the next two years. Ravindra Jadeja might announce his retirement from T20I cricket in this calendar year.

Discarded Indian opening batter Shikhar Dhawan might not get a chance to play for Indian team once again. With youngsters like Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal available in the camp, it’s certain that Shikhar Dhawan might not get another opportunity to represent the country. Shikhar might announce his T20I retirement after IPL 2024. Not only in T20I cricket, Shikhar might also announce his international retirement. Shikhar Dhawan played his last T20I game for India in July 2021.
