Cricketers Who Came Out of Retirement

It’s not uncommon for a cricketer to retire early and then come back. There are some legendary cricketers who rode that wave of success, including Shane Warne, who had a stellar comeback after his first retirement. Some players have been forced out of retirement because they can’t find other jobs and others just miss the game too much. Here are four cricketers who came back from retirement:

Yuvraj Singh

When a player is forced to retire due to a tumor in his lungs, there is little hope that they will ever play again. But Yuvraj Singh showed the world that he was not ready to give up on his career yet. In 2017, he made a comeback after being out of cricket for three years and immediately began scoring runs at an alarming rate. The following year, he was the third highest run scorer in all forms of international cricket.

Shane Warne

Shane Keith Warne is a former Australian international cricketer and a leading cricket commentator. He was named one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1994, and famously bowled Shane Watson, out for just four runs on his first ball with a ball that turned away from him at hook height.

He retired from playing test cricket after taking 708 wickets by 1996, but came back to play for the Melbourne Stars in 2013 where he took 12 wickets for the season. His last game was against Perth Scorchers in 2014 where he took 3/35 off 4 overs before retiring again due to shoulder surgery complications which forced him into retirement from playing professional cricket altogether.
