The ODI World Cup 2019 is less than a year away from now. England and Wales brace themselves to host the 12th edition of the tournament. All the teams are grinding it out to find the right combinations for the prestigious event. As the countdown begins, the excitement only gets bigger.

While the biggest players like Virat Kohli, Mitchell Starc will find themselves on the posters of the campaign, there are a few who would be featuring in their last World Cup. The flip side to the enormity of the event is that the game might bid adieu to some of its top servants over the years after the tournament.

Here are 5 top cricketers who might call it quits after the ODI World Cup 2019

#1 MS Dhoni

This might bring sadness to numerous Indian cricket fans. It’s sad but true that the sun is setting ever so slightly for the best finisher the game has ever seen. MS Dhoni left the longest format of the game in 2016 and since then, there seems to be only one aim that he is headed for. The 37-year-old has been an integral part of the Indian ODI side for over a decade and he would love to finish on a high.

Even though his batting prowess has diminished a bit in the past couple of years, yet his presence behind the wicket is paramount. Famous for playing the most important knock of Indian cricketing history in the final of the 2011 World Cup that brought glory to the country after 28 years, the most successful captain would love to sign off with another silverware.
