The World Cup holds a special place in the folklore of the game. In fact, we often remember the players who have played a significant role in the World Cup. The 12th edition of the World Cup will be held in England and Wales and the opening match will take place between England and South Africa at the Kennington Oval on 30th May.

Meanwhile, there are some players who had performed well in the 2015 edition. However, they could not get in the squad and thus won’t feature in this edition of the league.

Here are the five players who had played a major role in the 2015 World Cup but won’t play in 2019.

India’s southpaw batsman had performed well for the team in the previous edition of the tournament. Suresh Raina had scored 284 runs in the six matches of the competition at an average of 56.80. Furthermore, Raina had scored his runs at a strike rate of 110.08. The left-hander also scored two fifties and one hundred against Zimbabwe.

However, Raina will not feature in the upcoming World Cup. The experienced batsman isn’t in the best of forms and he had last played in the T20I series against England in 2018.
