The Indian cricket team has pinned its hopes on Rohit Sharma & Co. to bring an end to the nation’s wait for an ICC title as the team travels to Australia for the T20 World Cup 2022.

While the squad has a good mix of rookie and experienced players, however, India will miss the services of Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah. In this current team, there are few players who most likely will play their last T20 World Cup and could either retire or be dropped from India’s T20I team after the tournament in Australia.

Until March this year, Dinesh Karthik was nowhere near the Indian team’s T20 setup and had been dropped after the 2019 World Cup. However, thunderous performances in the IPL 2022 – 330 runs at a strike rate of 183 – forced the selectors to recall Karthik, at the age of 37, as a specialist finisher in the T20I team.

Fitness has been one of the biggest headaches of India’s full-time skipper Rohit Sharma. Rohit being prone to injury every now and then has forced him into the sidelines quite often. The right-hand batting dynamo is the leading run-getter in the T20I format with 3620 runs and we might see Sharma retire from the shorter format.

Rohit Sharma will celebrate his 37th birthday before the T20 World Cup in 2024. And is unlikely to not only hold the captaincy post but also may leave playing T20 cricket altogether to focus on his Test career and prolong his career in the longest format.
