The Super 12 of the T20 World Cup 2021 came to an end and the teams England, Australia, Pakistan, and New Zealand made it to the semi-finals. After the semis, only two teams- New Zealand and Australia – remain in contention to bag the title.

Some players and teams have performed well, while some other players have not performed to their expectations. Some great players are expected to bid adieu to the game after this tournament while some have already announced their retirement.

This World Cup might be the last stint for some players if they retire and some players may not get a chance to play the T20 WC tournament, which is set to get underway in 2022, due to their form.

Here is the list of players who played this 2021 T20 WC but may not play the next edition in 2022 in Australia:

Chris Gayle is the ambassador of the T20 format. He has been a role model for the players who wanted to be an explosive batter like him. His ability to clear the ropes without moving his feet and the way he makes batting look so easy is astonishing.

He is one of the six players to play in this tournament right from the inaugural season. He is the second-highest run-getter in T20 World Cups and was West Indies’ key player in their World Cup-winning campaigns in 2012 and 2016. However, this season was not his favourite.

This 42-year-old player is the oldest in the tournament. In West Indies’ last league match against Australia, he received a guard of honour which made the fans think that they are witnessing the ‘Universe Boss’ for one last time in maroon. But he denied the talks about his retirement but yet this might be the last stint for this legend in a T20 World Cup.
