The T20 World Cup in Australia has reached a turning point. The tournament saw many players leaving their mark, while others were unable to live up to their potential.

Through this article, we will identify four players who can retire from the T20 format after the T20 World Cup in 2022.

Aaron Finch

The first name in this list comes from Australian captain Aaron Finch. Finch had announced his retirement from ODI cricket just before the start of the World Cup.

After the current tournament, he can announce his retirement from this format as well.

Finch’s form has not been special in the recent past and big questions are being raised about his fitness too.

In the last league match of the Australia team against Afghanistan, Finch could not play in the playing 11 due to a hamstring.

The 35-year-old Finch has scored a total of 3120 runs in 103 T20Is played so far at an average of 34.29 and a strike rate of 142.53. During this, two centuries and 19 half-centuries were also seen with his bat.

Martin Guptill

The next name in the list comes from Kiwi opener Martin Guptill. Experienced opener Guptill is also a part of this tournament, but due to poor form, he has not got a chance to play in a single match so far.

In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that Martin Guptill can take retirement after this tournament.

In the 122 T20I matches he has played so far, he has scored a total of 3531 runs at an average of 32 and a strike rate of 135.7. He has scored 2 centuries and 20 half-centuries in T20Is.

Ben Stokes

The next name in the list comes from English all-rounder Ben Stokes. Stokes, who recently said goodbye to ODI cricket due to an increasing workload, can also announce his retirement from T20 cricket after the current tournament.

In the T20 World Cup 2022, Stokes was disappointed with both bat and ball.

He has scored only 16 runs in 3 innings with a very simple average of 5.33. Wickets could also take only 4.

The 31-year-old can focus on Test cricket after retiring from T20Is. In 86 T20I matches so far, Ben has scored 491 runs at an average of 36 and has managed to take 24 wickets at an average of 32.58.

Ravichandran Ashwin

The name of R Ashwin is also included in this list. A few months before the T20 World Cup, Ashwin was made a part of Team India for this format.

Before Yuzvendra Chahal, he got a chance to play in the playing-11, but he could not live up to the expectations. In the first 4 matches of the tournament, he took 3 wickets at an average of 35.33.

After the World Cup, he has not been made a part of the T20 team even from the tour of New Zealand.

Chief selector Chetan Sharma had also said in his statement that ‘after the World Cup, we are thinking of trying different players.’

In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that after retiring from T20Is, Ashwin can focus on Test cricket. Even in ODI cricket, Ashwin is not a regular member of Team India.
