While many promising international cricket careers are prime to flourish in the year 2021, some are destined to see their end. There is a strong likelihood of a few prominent names playing their last games at the highest level in the upcoming 12 months.
For a variety of reasons, there is a high chance these players might not continue long in positions for their respective teams in the forthcoming year.
5 Players Who Might Witness The End Of Their International Cricket Career In 2021:
5. Joe Burns
Even before the start of the ongoing home summer, there were genuine question marks raised at Joe Burns place as an opener in the Australian Test side. It was only through trust shown by head coach Justin Langer and skipper Tim Paine, besides multiple injuries, that Burns got the nod to face India.
But after looking horribly out of touch in three of his four innings, the right-hand batsman got dropped from the squad. The 31-year-old doesn’t have an overall impressive record to his name either. And with other promising names also emerging through the ranks, it could well be that Burns has already played his Test for Australia. The right-hander isn’t part of the limited-overs set-up. His international cricket career might end in 2021.
