No one is guaranteed a spot for a longer time in the Indian team as the competitive standards have gone up and let us look at some of the Indian players who should retire from the T20 format. The selectors have given chances to more players than before and it is the responsibility of the players to grab the opportunities with both hands. International cricket has a lot more pressure and adapting to it at the earliest is mandatory now.

The first T20 match between India and England resulted in the favour of the England side as they dominated the proceedings from ball one. It was tough for India to come back after losing three important wickets so early and despite the efforts of Shreyas Iyer, India could not build momentum and eventually succumbed to a very low score which the England batsman chased down very easily.

Manish Pandey has been part of the T20 squads for a long time now but was dropped for the England series to give chances for new faces like Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. Manish Pandey has been in and out of the side with the Indian management preferring Shreyas Iyer over him for the same spot.

Manish Pandey has also not been at his prime best for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL scoring 425 runs in the 16 games he played. Despite not being at his absolute best, he averages more than 44 for India in T20s and needs to look at retiring from the T20 format as India is most likely to part ways with him.
