3 Indian Players May Retire from T20Is, says Monty Panesar

This time, under a new captain and coaching setup, Team India didn't qualify for the T20 World Cup 2022 final in Australia. India's trophy-less journey has continued since they won the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 under MS Dhoni.

After yet semi-final exit, Team India now gears up for the next series. Rohit and Co will tour New Zealand for a limited-over series. One can make their 11Sixes Fantasy Team on the mobile application.

11Sixes is the best app in the market, and it is safe to install as well. The app is free to download on Android and IOS devices.

Team India couldn’t lift the T20 World Cup 2022 trophy this time as England ended their journey in the semi-final 2 match, which was played at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, 10th November 2022.

Jos Buttler's team became the only team to have two ICC trophies at the same time.

England won the fifty overs WC in 2019 under Eoin Morgan and won this T20I trophy for the second time. England won the T20 World Cup 2022 final against Pakistan at the iconic stadium, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Jos Buttler and his team are just the second side after West Indies to have won two T20 WC titles.

Former England spin bowler, Mudhsuden (Monty) Panesar feels that Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, and Ravichandran Ashwin might retire from the shortest format after this loss to England in the semi-finals. 

England gave a clinical performance in that game and cruised to a ten-wicket win at the Adelaide Oval.

Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli’s valuable contributions went in vain as the other team members of the men in blue side couldn't give match-winning performances in a pressure situation and must-win encounter.

India has let everyone down after the semi-final loss, says Monty

India has yet to win any ICC events since they won the Champions Trophy in 2013 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Even Gautam Gambhir said that Mahi’s three ICC Title wins will be the only record intact in world cricket, and no captain has a chance to break it. Panesar said that India’s loss in the semi-finals has disappointed everyone. 

He even said that the team would go into a transition period as some senior players will retire after the semis exit from the 2022 T20 WC.

Monty felt that India lacked the fighting intent against England in the semi-final encounter and the Indian bowlers were clueless in that match. The former spinner also felt 169 runs wasn’t a small score to defend.

Rohit, Ashwin, and Karthik are not small names in International Cricket 

Monty Panesar says Hit man, Ash and DK are big players in Indian cricket and international cricket. They are not small-named players.

But their retirement from the shortest format might impact the men in blue because they bring so much to the team through their performances, talent, and experience.
