‘There will be some retirements,’ Sunil Gavaskar comments following India’s semifinal loss to England.

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes that several players would retire following India’s humiliating 10-wicket loss to England in the T20 World Cup quarterfinal on Thursday.

Gavaskar intimated that there are several players in the group who are in their mid-30s, and that the T20Is may be their only chance.

“There will be some retirements also coming through, you never know. This is not the time to think about it. You really get away from it, give it a lot of thought but there are a lot of players in their mid-30s who would consider their position for the Indian T20 team,”

It will be the beginning of a new era

Furthermore, Gavaskar also claimed that Hardik Pandya taking over as captain for the New Zealand trip will mark the start of a new era.

“For the New Zealand tour, it’s a different team. The team is going there under Hardik Pandya. He will begin to put his stamp on the team because clearly, the selection committee has sent a signal that he, having won the IPL in his first assignment, as a captain, they have marked him out as captain for T20s,”

Gavaskar said

England won with four overs to spare as openers Alex Hales (86 not out) and Jos Buttler (80 not out) smashed India’s bowlers.

By hitting 170 runs off 96 deliveries, they hushed the 40,000-strong pro-India crowd. Theirs was the highest opening stand in T20 cricket history, as well as the highest opening stand in all T20 World Cups.
