ODI Cricket retired XI (2015-2018)
Best XI of retired players in ODI post 2015 World Cup.
The year 2015 has witnessed a number of cricket greats announcing their retirement. It all began with the ICC World Cup, which held in the month of February-March.
After the World Cup, Sri Lanka’s legendary duo of Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara retired from ODIs. Others in the list to retire after the World Cup were New Zealand’s Daniel Vettori and Australia’s World Cup winning Captain Michael Clarke.
Even the Indian team said goodbye to some of the greatest cricketers who were pillars of the team for more than a decade.
Here is the best XI of retired players who bid farewell to the beatiful game sine 2015:
#1 Virender Sehwag (India)
Role- Batsman Batting Style- Right-handed
A flamboyant opener from India, Sehwag changed the way openers batted in cricket. Sehwag's gifted technique with the bat along with his ability to anchor the team's innings makes him one of the most remarkable players in Indian cricket history.
The dashig opener initially started as a lower-order batsman, but gradually established himself as of the most aggressive openers to have played the game. He is also the second Indian to have score double-century in ODI.
Sehwag holds multiple records including the highest score made by an Indian in Test cricket (319 against South Africa), which was also the fastest triple century in the history of international cricket (reached 300 off only 278 balls).
