6. Rohit Sharma (India) – 35 years

Much like his former skipper and compatriot, the Mumbaikar would also look to prioritize ODI cricket post the ICC event later this year with hopes of leading his country to their third World Cup title, in front of their home crowd. 

5. Virat Kohli (India) – 33 years

Kohli’s struggle with the bat is a concern for the Indian team with the emergence of young talented players, who are ready to dislodge the veteran batter from the side. But the major reason for his retirement post the T20 World Cup later this year could be the 50-over World Cup next year in India and his love for Test cricket.

4. Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh) – 35 years

The 35-year-old is at that stage where he needs to preserve his body for important events, and the newly appointed Test captain might shift his focus to red-ball cricket after the upcoming ICC event in Australia.

3. Tim Southee (New Zealand) – 33 years

Southee, who is one of the best exponents of the swinging ball is the second leading wicket-taker in T20Is. But recent poor performances in white-ball cricket suggest that the Kiwi might be thinking about quitting the format in order to prolong his career in the traditional form of the game, where he continues to exploit batters’ weaknesses against the swinging ball.

2. David Warner (Australia) – 35 years

With the 50-over World Cup scheduled in India next year, he might retire from the T20I format after this year’s tournament to concentrate on the longer formats of the game.

1. Aaron Finch (Australia) – 35 years

The 35-year-old is the fourth-highest run-getter in the format but has hinted at retirement after completing this year’s edition of the T20 World Cup. If he does decide to call it quits, he might want to do it in style by lifting the trophy in front of his home supporters.
