India’s World Cup dream is now over and it was a sad end to India’s tournament campaign. The Indian lost the semifinal against New Zealand by 18 runs. However, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni put up a resilient effort with the bat. But they could prevent the defeat. Jadeja scored 77 from 59 balls and he let his bat do all the talking.

Meanwhile, there are some players who might have played their swansong tournament. These players have done a good job but it could be the end of the road for them.

In fact, the BCCI selectors and the team management will like to make their team keeping the next World Cup in mind. They would like to invest in the youth and give the youngsters their exposure to develop.

Here are the three players who might not get a chance to play in ODIs:

Kedar Jadhav might not get a chance in the ODI cricket. Jadhav was not able to deliver the goods in the World Cup. The right-hander scored 80 runs in the five innings at an average of 40 and strike rate of 80.81. Furthermore, Jadhav is 34 years old and he would be 38 in the next World Cup. Thus, the team would like to get the young blood in place of him. Moreover, Jadhav could not deliver the goods with the ball. In fact, he didn’t get a lot of chance to bowl in the World Cup.
