The ODI World Cup 2023 is just a few months away with the first game set to be played on October 5. The opener features England and New Zealand in a rematch of the previous edition’s final that England clinched on a boundary count following a tied super over. The same level of excitement is anticipated this year as the World Cup returns to India after 12 long years. Talking of the hosts, there are a handful of players who might be featured in the coveted tournament for the last time. Here are five Indian players who could be playing their final World Cup in 2023.
5. Mohammed Shami
First up, one of India’s senior pace bowlers, Mohammed Shami would be 36 years old by the time the next World Cup starts. As such, this could be his final shot at winning the coveted trophy. The ace speedster is a great weapon for the Indian skipper, he can swing the ball both ways and is a champion of the reverse swing. While he is particularly impressive in the longer formats, he also set the stage on fire in the last edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with 28 wickets in 17 games getting him the Purple Cap for most wickets scalped in the tournament.
