T20 cricket has always welcomed any player disregarding his age and this has created a lot of opportunities for the veterans to keep sticking to the game. Fitness might be a concern, but a 20 overs format might not require the fitness levels needed for a test or an ODI game.
Some players have not announced their retirement despite the age going up and there have been instances of those players making a comeback in international stages. They have proved that age is just a number and here are the 5 oldest players to have played T20Is.
5 Oldest Players To Have Played T20Is:
John Davison is considered to be one of the greatest cricketers from Canada and he represented the nation in 32 ODIs and 5 T20 internationals from the period of 2003 to 2011. He has an international century alongside 5 half-centuries and also has taken 40 international wickets.
Davison was 39 years and 277 days when he played in the ICC World T20 qualifier match against Kenya at Dubai on February 10, 2010. He becomes the fifth oldest player to feature in a T20 international and he announced his retirement a year later.
