Default TOP 10 Cricketers who will retire after World Cup 2019

TOP 10 Cricketers who will retired after World Cup 2019

The dawn of 2019 ICC world cup will be the most befitting occasion to look back at how each of them fared.Chris Gayle

West Indies v England - 1st One Day International
No appraisal is needed to determine how phenomenal a career Chris Gayle had. He had evolved from an intimidating West Indian batsman to the universe boss, amassing over 19000 international runs. He remains a beacon for the power hitters. He holds the record for most sixes in international cricket. For a batsman who has scored two triple centuries in test and one double century in ODI, it may be unfair to say he was at his best in T20. Such was his rapport with the format. In 2007, he marked the advent of T20I into popularity with a century in the inaugural T20 world cup match. No other player dominated the format with such ferocity as Gayle did. He will walk off the field with an impeccable career and as the greatest T20 batsman.

Shoaib Malik

Pakistan v West Indies - T20 International
Shoaib Malik always played the game with a smile. Starting as a Number 10 batsman, he aggregated over 11000 runs and 200 wickets in international cricket. He was exceptional against India in ODI averaging over 48. Four of his nine ODI tons were against India. The curious case of Malik is that he played all the champions trophy since his debut but missed 3 of the 5 world cups. 2019 will be his last world cup. eventually when he takes his pads off, he might feel underachieved but the ever-smiling Shoaib Malik always played the game in the right spirit. He will always be a paradigm for the gentleman's game.

Mohammad Hafeez

Pakistan v South Africa - ICC Champions Trop
In 2012, while being Pakistan's opening batsman in all formats, Hafeez became the number two ranked bowler and all-rounder in both limited over formats. Such immense was his talent in all facets of the game. He came to Pakistan team in their resurrection phase after the 2003 world cup fiasco. Even though the first half of his career has been inconsistent Hafeez started making his significance from the earlier part this decade. Scoring over 12000 runs and taking nearly 250 wickets, Hafeez became a late bloomer for Pakistan. In 2019 world cup he is entrusted with a key role in solidifying the middle order and keeping the opposition batsman dormant for few overs. Hafeez may bid adieu to the international cricket soon and will be remembered as "professor" among cricket aficionados for a long time.

Liam Plunkett

England v Australia - 2nd Royal London ODI
Around March 2007 news has surfaced that a 21-year-old English fast bowler has offered a kidney to his father. For the sake of his son' s career, the father turned the offer down. In 2019, he is an important member of country's world cup campaign. Plunkett made his international debut in 2005 but for the most part of his career, he was out of the national team. He turned his career around in the last 4 years. Post WC 2015 only 6 bowlers have taken more wickets in ODI than his tally of 85. In England's venture to become the best ODI side after 2015 World cup debacle, he played an indispensable role. At 34, This may be his last world cup and If England comes out triumphant, he can raise the ball one last time with head high.

Ross Taylor

New Zealand v England - 4th ODI
Earliest memory of Ross Taylor was his 128 against Sri Lanka in 2006. An innings characterized by his trademark slog-sweeps and cover drives. Even though he had to mute down his slog sweep later in his career, he continued his prolific run scoring. Ross Taylor is among the best batsmen of our time. Scored over 16000 runs with 38 centuries, Ross Taylor had a fairly consistent international career. Averaging in the higher 40s in both test and ODIs, he is yet to show any trace of senescence. Leading to the ICC world cup 2019, Taylor is in the zenith of his game. The fact that a 35-year-old Ross Taylor is the talisman for New Zealand imposes how great a player he is. Irrespective what happens in this world cup, he will retire as one of the best.
