Top 5 Players Who Could Retire This Year After IPL 2024

Since its launch in 2008, the Indian Premier League has done a great job of promoting cricket both domestically and internationally. Young players have benefited from the lucrative T20 franchise competition, which has given them experience and paved the door for their national teams. Veteran players who have reached the end of their careers have also found a platform in the event.

To extend the careers of seasoned bowlers and batsmen, fans have flocked to the competition to see their favourite players who do not play for the national team.

Almost every IPL season has ended in tragedy for well-known players, and the next lucrative T20 tournament may be the final time we see some of these stars play for their national franchises.

Nothing is confirmed, but there's a good chance these players will put up their boots after the end of the 2024 Indian Premier League.

Top 5 Players Who Could Retire This Year After IPL 2024

1. MS Dhoni

Let's start right away with the name that is listed first!

The renowned former Indian captain may not wear the magnificent yellow of his favourite Chennai Super Kings again till the 2024 season.

Though there have long been rumours that Dhoni is retiring, the charismatic captain has persevered in winning fans over with his shows with the glove, the willow, or just his smart leadership and presence. Season after season, he has returned to the "Den" to thrill his supporters.

With an unprecedented level of adoration for the wicketkeeper-batter everywhere he went, last year was widely predicted to be the captain's last year in the IPL. However, the World Cup winner has once again defied the odds to play for the five-time winners for at least one more season.

Although the Chennai supporters would hope for a long-lasting relationship with the mysterious captain, the 42-year-old may decide to hang up his boots.

2. David Warner

Warner, the highest-scoring foreign batsman in IPL history, may be calling it a day in the IPL as well. Warner has already announced his retirement from Test and One-Day International cricket for the Australian national team.

The explosive opener is probably going to participate in his final T20 World Cup this year. The southpaw, who has developed a cult following in the Indian subcontinent because of his outrageous antics off the field and excellent batting, may also be slowly but surely retiring from the IPL.

The Australian is getting close to 6400 runs and is the only player from India among the top 5 scorers in the competition.

3. Sunil Naraine

The cunning Windies spinner, who transformed the game of break-bowling with an array of feats that confounded hitters and amazed onlookers, could be nearing the end of his career in the IPL.

After his initial appearances for the Kolkata Knight Riders, whom he has represented since he arrived at Eden Gardens in 2012, the original mystery spinner—who bewildered opponents with his countless variations and the renowned “carrom-ball” that caused a sensation in its early days—also developed into a useful source of runs with the willow in his hand.

Known for his signature mohawk, Naraine has amassed 163 wickets while playing for KKR, and before he retires, he hopes to add a few more.

4. Amit Mishra

Another spinner, who has distinguished himself with his deft bowling and ability to take wickets, may also be nearing the end of his career due to his elderly age. Throughout his lengthy tenure in the T20 league, this player has been a regular contender for the coveted purple cap.

Over forty years of age, the bowler is currently with the Lucknow Super Giants and has taken 173 wickets in his career, including four four-wicket scores and a fifer.

In addition, Mishra owns two hattricks, one from the Delhi Capitals and one from the Deccan Chargers.

5. Piyush Chawla

The leg-spinner, who the Mumbai Indians decided to hold onto before the 2024 auction, may play in his last IPL season next year.

Although Chawla is the youngest player on the list, he has recorded 179 dismissals and is third among all-time IPL wicket-takers, behind only Dwayne Bravo and Yuzvendra Chahal. According to rumours, Chawla may be considering terminating his career in the local T20 tournament.
