    Rubel Hossain is retired from FC,Test


    Add Munro to Ret from everything but 20 Over:
    Here is why

    Retired him from ODI and List A, but leaving him available for 20Over International.

    Evin Lewis didn't play any FC cricket since 2017 and this is enough to retire him from that format.

    Fair enough, he's 32 this year so a comeback would be surprising.

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar should be also added to FC, Test retirement. Agreed

    Moin Ali is still retired from FC, Test _rashid.html

                  I can't remember if he was retired in CC22, but if not, then Rajendra Chandrika should be retired considering he last played in 2018. Yes, he's retired.
                  Murali Vijay also retired in January, but can't remember if he was in CC22 or not. Yes, he's retired.

                  Ehsan Adil, Saad Ali, Nauman Anwar, Sami Aslam, Hammad Azam, Angelo Perera, Basanta Regmi and Awais Zia shouldn't be retired, as they quit cricket in their homeland to qualify & play
                  for the USA, most actively being in talks with the USA cricket board before leaving. They should all be unretired and instead be placed in the USA nationality section. I believe almost all of them will be available by the 2024 T20 WC as most of them quit in 2021 or beforehand and there's a good chance quite a few of them will play for the USA around that time. I've unretired them and have moved them to USA nationality.

                  Kjorn Ottley isn't retired, he still plays 50 Over cricket domestically and is presumably available internationally as well still. He doesn't get selected in the other format as he's much better in LA's and so is seen as near enough as a 50 over specialist, which explains why he's played 58 List A matches compared to 17 FCs and 3 T20s in 13 years as a professional.

                  He's not played domestic cricket since the 20/21 season, he's playing locally.

                  I'm not sure Mehran Khan (Oman) should be retired, he last played a offical international match in 2019, but cricinfo has him down as playing the Oman games vs Mumbai and Bangladesh in 2021, so it's possibly just a case of not being selected at the moment and being on the fringes of the side. Good spot, still playing locally.

                  Jay Odedra isn't retired, he played for Oman as recently as last month, taking a 5fer in his most recent game against Kuwait. Un-retired

                  Abdul Shakoor should be unretired as he still played the T10 as recently as November 2021, and is still playing decently in domestic competitions, and at 35 that won't be too old for a possible UAE recall either which does still seem possible. Done

                  Muhammad Usman should also be unretired as he last played internationals as recently as Feburary 2022, it's just that he got dropped from the side. There's a possibility that he could get recalled despite his age considering it's the UAE, and that he's averaging 75 in 50 over cricket domestically this year. Done

                  To the best of my knowledge, Xavier Marshall isn't retired, he's just been dropped, and is still playing the MiLC. Could always be recalled considering the USA rarely has a cemented squad of players. Done

                  I'm fairly certain that Kevin O'Brien retired from all cricket including T20s, and only really plays those exhibition T20s for retired players. He's a assistant coach with Italy now so that'll take up his time as well. Done.

                  Ross Taylor should probably still be retired in FCs, considering he only returned for the white ball matches (the 50 over cup initially) & his last Test remains as his last FC game and is likely to remain so. Done

                  Robin Uthappa retired last year as it mentions briefly in this article. (


                  Hamid Hassan - retired in early March when he was appointed as the Afghanistan bowling coach as he mentions here (


                  Benny Howell is on a white ball contract and isn't retired from List A's, it's just that his 100 contract happens to coincide during the RLODC but he certainly isn't retired from it otherwise he would be on a T20 only contract. He played for the England Lions in 50 Over games against South Africa with success last year. He's now white ball available.

                  Tom Cooper should probably be unretired from FC's & Tests, as the main reason he hasn't played any FC matches is that he hasn't had a domestic contract. He would still be playing FC matches for the Netherlands as well if the ICC hadn't scrapped the Intercontinental Cup. Done

                  Lockie Ferguson should definitely be unretired from FCs & Tests, he last played a FC match just the other month in March, and just the other day said he still wanted to play test cricket. Done

                  Thisara Perera should be unretired from domestic FC's, he last played a match in the format in late August 2022, which is just a few weeks after his most recent LA game. Done

                  To echo what others have said, Tamim Iqbal retired from T20Is before the World Cup last year but still plays the BPL. Usman Shinwari (There's still a duplicate of him in CC22 on the Northern team as a 01/01/02 player) retired from FC & Tests due to injury, and Rubel Hossain retired from Tests+FCs last year with his last match in the format being 2020. All done.

                  2 Other players who could either be retired or have their nationalities changed are Javed Ahmadi and Farhan Zakhail. Both fled the Taliban to Australia with Ahmadi in 2021 and Zakhail recently. Ahmadi played in Afghanistan's last test match whilst Zakhil is only 19, captained the U19 side at the World Cup at just 16, and is apparently doing really well in Sydney grade cricket, so you never know could play pro cricket again further down the line. I think Ahmadi is busy with work to support his young family so is probably unlikely to play pro cricket again, but Zakhail could play professionally again considering his record and age.

                  Ahmadi is down as retired. I've changed Zakhil to Australian.

                  Roshen Silva could possibly be down as retired, he's signed on to playing Australian grade cricket instead of Sri Lankan domestic cricket for the 2023-24 season. 35, so I've retired him.

                  I don't know if they're down as retired yet, but both Kyle Coetzer & Callum MacLeod retired from all cricket, with Coetzer becoming assistant coach at the Northern Diamonds. Thanks retired both.

                  Shaun Marsh should be retired from all but T20s, he will play out his last year of his BBL contract this upcoming season before retiring for good. ( Done

                  Danushka Gunathilaka (if still in the game, should probably be banned for at least a year whilst the case is still ongoing) retired from Test & FC cricket in January 2022 to focus on white ball cricket. Banned for a year.

                  Tawanda Mupariwa has retired from all cricket, including Australian grade cricket in March. ( Retired from all cricket.

                  Rory Anders retired from domestic cricket last year, which was only oddly ever mentioned as a footnote in an article or two. ( Removed from game.

                      Jack Leach may not injured in the game so you can't add moeen Ali to Ashes Squad for first Test.
                      second if Leach would have not been injured Moeen Ali wouldn't have come back to tests. so moeen Ali should remain retired from test, FC in game. and if you still wants moeen Ali in tests than unretired him only from test not FC, he may not play tests, FC after Ashes.
