ODI World Cup is to be organized in India this year. Team India is busy preparing for this World Cup. India had to face defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the semi-finals of the last ODI World Cup. Team India has changed a lot since that match. There are many players who have either retired or have been dropped from the team. This year there are 5 players who are almost impossible to play in the ODI World Cup. Let us know today which are those 5 players who played the World Cup for Team India in the year 2019, but will not be seen with the team this year.
These players will not play this World Cup
MS Dhoni: MS Dhoni will not be seen playing for Team India in this year’s World Cup. He was a part of Team India in the 2019 World Cup. He retired from international cricket in 2020. The semi-final match of the year 2019 was MS Dhoni’s last international match. MS Dhoni was the main part of the Indian team that year. But now MS Dhoni will not be seen behind the wicket of the fans in this World Cup. Dhoni has won one ODI World Cup for India as captain.
Dinesh Karthik: Dinesh Karthik is finding it very difficult to play in the ODI World Cup this year. Although Karthik has not yet announced his retirement, but looking at his form and age, it seems that he will not be able to return to Team India. He played his last international match in the T20 World Cup in the year 2022. Karthik was a part of Team India in the 2019 World Cup. But this year he is getting dropped from the team. The team has many options in this format as a wicketkeeper.
Vijay Shankar: Vijay Shankar was selected in Team India in the last ODI World Cup. Many questions were also raised regarding his election. Shankar did not live up to this decision of the BCCI and the team management and was soon dropped from the team. He played his last match in the 2019 World Cup itself. Since then he is running out of Team India. Although Shankar has done well in the IPL before this year’s World Cup, but his place in Team India is yet to be made.
Shikhar Dhawan: Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been on the drop from Team India for a long time. He was dropped from the Indian ODI team due to consistent poor performance. Dhawan has failed to make a comeback in Team India since then. In his place, Shubman Gill was given a chance in the team and he has also shown great performance. It is very difficult for Dhawan to replace Gill now. In such a situation, it seems almost impossible for him to play in this year’s ODI World Cup.
Kedar Jadhav: Kedar Jadhav was part of Team India in the 2019 World Cup. But since then his performance declined significantly, due to which he was dropped from Team India in the year 2020. It is almost impossible for Jadhav to make a comeback in the Indian team now. Jadhav has not retired from international cricket, but he is now far from the path of comeback. In such a situation, it seems difficult for him to play the World Cup.
