The ODI World Cup 2023 is set to be one of the biggest cricket tournaments of all time. There is extremely huge hype around the tournament, as the ODI World Cups are a rare phenomenon. Unlike the T20 World Cups which are played every 2 years, the ODI World Cup is played once in four years. That keeps the fans waiting for it. That is the reason behind the huge attention to the tournament.
With ODIs not serving great purpose in recent times, the ODI World Cup might act like a perfect medicine for the change of proceedings in the format. ODIs need this tournament badly. Many players need this tournament badly. There are many youngsters waiting to showcase their talent at the highest level. The ODI World Cup will undoubtedly test the mental strength of all the cricketers.
Likewise, there are many experienced campaigners who are towards the fag end of their careers. Some have been unlucky to miss out on making it to the side in the tournament. Such players might be looking to perform in the best way possible to bid goodbye to the tournament, and possibly to the format in the near future. Here are 5 players who might retire from ODIs after the ODI World Cup 2023.
Martin Guptill has not played ODIs for New Zealand in a long time. In fact, Guptill has not even been a regular in the Kiwi side, as the rise of other batters like Will Young, Devon Conway, and Finn Allen has forced him to be neglected by New Zealand’s management. The form of Guptill has not helped him either. He recently became 37 years old and does not seem to have much left in him. Following the campaign of New Zealand, Guptill might announce his retirement from ODIs to focus on T20 Leagues.
