Yet again, in a World Cup event, the Indian Cricket Team succumbed under pressure in a knockout match. Team India’s campaign came to an end in the 20-20 World Cup 2022 with a 10-wicket defeat against England in the semi-final. India’s timid approach and their ability to play under pressure, once again, came under the scanner.

The fans and the cricket experts have lashed out, particularly, at the senior players, who failed to deliver in a crunch game for the nation. Nevertheless, the team would now be aiming at the next edition of the 20-20 World Cup and you could expect a lot of changes to take place.

A host of senior players are also likely to retire as it’s unlikely that they would be fit enough to represent India in the next edition of the 20-20 World Cup 2022. In this article, we will be talking about five such players:

5. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

There is no denying the fact that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is past his prime. He bowled tidy overs and conceded less than 7 runs an over in the tournament. However, it’s also fair to say that the Indian fast bowler didn’t pick as many wickets in the power play as one would expect him to. In 6 matches, all he managed to pick was 4 wickets in the tournament.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has lost his pace considerably and it’s not likely that he would be given a lot of chances in the 20-20 team going forward.
