The T20 format is one that is extremely dynamic. The game can change in a matter of a few overs, and a player has to be on his toes all the time if he has to stay on top in the T20 format. And, with the mushrooming of T20 leagues all across the world, with the IPL being the most popular one, there is no dearth of talent, as far as T20 cricket is concerned.
While numerous players have been given the opportunity to express themselves, and have even got a chance to represent their country because of their performances in the T20 leagues, there are also several players who are at the fag end of their T20I journey.
In this article, let us take a look at 10 current international cricketers whose T20I careers are almost over.
10. Darren Bravo
At the 10th place, we have West Indies batsman Darren Bravo. While the left-hander is a vital cog of the West Indian batting line up as far as Test cricket is concerned, the same cannot be said of his T20I prospects. Bravo last appeared for the West Indies in a T20I match in March 2019, against England.
Bravo is also not a regular even in IPL cricket. In fact, Bravo has played just a solitary match in the IPL, where he turned out for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the year 2017, and remained unbeaten on 6. He has played 20 matches for the West Indies in T20I cricket, and scored 340 runs at an underwhelming average of 20.0, and a strike rate of just 107.26.
With the likes of the highly-rated Shimron Hetmyer, the mercurial Nicholas Pooran, and the big-hitting Kieron Pollard occupying the middle order for the West Indies, Bravo’s T20I career is as good as over.
