3 cricketers who have retired in 2023 so far

Cricket is the second-most-watched sport in Asia. Moreover, it is also the most-watched sport in India. On top of that, cricketers who represent their nations try their maximum best to live up to their reputation.

The ones who perform quite consistently are the ones who go on to make an impact at the highest level. In the process, they also go on to play more games for their respective countries.

At the same time, one must know that a cricketer cannot be in the mix for several decades. Taking the fitness and age factor into account, a cricket can play for two decades at the top level.

Once the cricketer realizes that he doesn’t get opportunities to play for the team anymore, he would make a decision. Now, in this article, we will take a glimpse at the three cricketers who retired in 2023 so far.
