International Twenty20 players have said they might stop competing in the sport.
Several of India’s Twenty20 international players have said they could stop competing after the team’s defeat in Adelaide. This has put K.L. Rahul’s position in jeopardy. There would be consequences as a result of India losing to England in the semi-final of the Pari Match ICC Twenty20 World Cup 2022. There were hints that this would happen, but several players’ careers were ended by a devastating semifinal loss to England by a score of 10 wickets.
Both Dinesh Karthik and Ravichandran Ashwin have finished their careers as Twenty20 international players for India. Mohammad Shami won’t have any more chances to take advantage of them anytime soon. Additionally, there is little reason for hope given the situation surrounding Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The two players in this group with the highest recognition are by far Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. The legendary pair will be kicked out of Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) one at a time.
India decided to leave,
But the BCCI has already developed a transition plan for the nation, especially with the Twenty20 World Cup in 2024 in mind. Rohit will need to be picky about the contests he participates because his 35th birthday is soon. Therefore, designating him as the T20 captain in 2024 would be absurd. Instead, Hardik Pandya, a 29-year-old athlete, is in the lead. Karthik, Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar, and Shami, the team’s veterans, are about to be phased out and won’t be participating in games anymore.
Rishabh Pant will replace Dinesh Karthik, and Ashwin is reportedly considering quitting the Twenty20 format.
The first two players who are most likely to take their places are R Ashwin and Dinesh Karthik. Dinesh is already 37 years old, and he will be 39 by the time the following Twenty20 World Cup is contested. R Ashwin, on the other side, had a below-average campaign. The most likely successor to Dinesh is Rishabh Pant, while R Ashwin will vacate the position to make place for Washington Sundar. Rahul Dravid did not disclose anything in spite of this.
“Over the course of the next few years, we have some time to consider it. These competitors are some exceptionally gifted athletes. Any of these topics should not be spoken or thought about at this time. We will have enough time and matches as we move forward and attempt to prepare for the following World Cup, according to Dravid.

Are Bhuvneshwar and Shami’s Twenty20 International careers already over?
Bhuvneshwar has recently been a seam bowler who performs best on pitches that are favourable to seam bowling and who is only mediocre on pitches that are favourable to batting. The cadence of his pitches has been mimicked by batters thanks to his swinging deliveries. He has, however, come out as being quite ordinary when the hitters have had little support.
Shami seems to be having health issues throughout the T20 World Cup. The senior pacer was on everyone’s wish list after having a stellar performance in the Indian Premier League. Shami, on the other hand, seems to have given the franchise-based competition his all, but he was unable to control himself when he was up against England in the semifinals. It’s probable that he’d be asked to quit after India’s dismal performance in yet another ICC quarterfinal game.
