T20 World Cup: Semis defeat effect.. career of both of them in danger.. Retirement from T20Is?

India, who entered the semis with many expectations, lost badly and went home from the T20 World Cup. With this, it seems that the T20 international career of two senior players from Team India may be over after this tournament.

The Indian team’s journey in this tournament also ended with the defeat against England in the T20 World Cup 2022 semifinal match. In the semi-final match, India scored 168 runs but could not save it. England won the match with 4 overs to spare with a storm of batting from the openers. After the end of the T20 World Cup, there are reports that the T20 international career of two senior players from Team India may end.

It seems that Rohit Sharma’s T20 international career, who is currently captaining the Indian team in all three formats, is coming to an end, and Ravichandran Ashwin’s career may also say goodbye with him. Rohit is struggling in T20 Internationals. He can’t run as fast as before. Along with Rohit, the Indian team also has some young player options in the captaincy. Also there are many options in batting.

With last year’s T20 World Cup, Ashwin returned to limited overs cricket after almost 4 years. Since 2017, Ashwin has been getting opportunities only in Tests continuously. But he was brought back into the team before the T20 World Cup last year. Since then he has been a part of the Indian team in three consecutive formats. But, he could not prove effective in T20 Internationals. Due to continuous opportunities for Ashwin, India did not give a chance to the best T20 bowler like Yuzvendra Chahal in the current World Cup. This started criticism from the former.
