06-May-2019 world cup 2019
The World Cup holds a significant and emotional place in the life of a cricketer.
Every player hopes of ending his cricketing profession with a world Cup under his belt.
All the teams are already within the system of figuring out their best possible squads for the tournament that is slated to be held in next 7 months in England.
While several players pick themselves within the different squads, there could be certain players who might simply call it a day after the event in 2019.
We take a look at 5 such legends who may bid adieu to the game after the 2019 Cricket global Cup
1) Ross Taylor
One of the finest batsmen to have graced the team of New Zealand, Ross Taylor has been the central figure of New Zealand batting in last decade or so. Of late, the stylish right hander has had a magnificent run in white ball cricket and he is expected to play a crucial role in New Zealand’s world cup campaign next year.
The former captain of Black Caps will turn 35 next year it might be his last attempt to lift the World cup trophy, which the New Zealand failed to do in 2015.
2) Lasith Malinga
A bowler known for his unorthodox and slinging action, Lasith Malinga has been the best fast bowler for Sri Lanka in the decade gone by.
It is definitely going to be difficult for Sri Lanka to find a bowler like Malinga who could bowl those toe-crushing Yorkers with ease on regular basis.
Malinga is regarded as one of the finest death over bowlers of his generation because of his extraordinary ability to contain runs in final stages of the innings.
The slinger Malinga is already 35 and by all means he has passed his prime. Of late, his form has not been that great and the World Cup of 2019 would in all probability be his last.
3) MS Dhoni
Perhaps the biggest name in World Cricket at the moment, MS Dhoni is a legend in his own right.
The greatest finisher in one day cricket of all time, Dhoni’s contributions for Indian team will be remembered by everybody.
The Captain of T-20 and 50 over world cup winning team, Dhoni’s list of achievements is unparalleled.
Dhoni’s ability to read the situation of the game better than any of his contemporaries sets him apart and makes him an exemplary leader.
Already 37, Dhoni’s batting prowess has diminished a little and, in all likelihood, he will decide to call it a day after the global cricket event in 2019.
4) Chris Gayle
The name of Chris Gayle is synonymous with flamboyance and aggressive batting.
The burly West-Indian has etched his name in the minds of cricket fans through his aggressive batting and eye-pleasing stroke play.
The Southpaw from the Jamaica still holds the ability to destroy any bowling attack on his day.
A veteran of 281 ODI’s and a career spanned across more than 18 years, in all probability Gayle could be playing his last world cup in 2019.
5) Shoaib Malik
Shoaib Malik has been one of the greatest cricketers to have played for Pakistan.
A veteran of 261 ODI’s, Malik is a player who has the capability to play long innings and win matches for his country.
He has played many great knocks for Pakistan at in his career which has spanned for almost two decades.
His experience will come handy for Pakistan during the global tournament next year.
Pakistan would like to win this world Cup for him, because it will likely be his last.
