'One Last Dance' For International Cricket's 'Fab Four' at the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2023

‘One Last Dance’ For International Cricket’s ‘Fab Four’ at the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2023. The ICC Cricket World Cup in India in 2023, which will include some of the game’s top players and teams, is less than a month away. The modern-day “Fab Four,” which consists of batting greats Virat Kohli (India), Steve Smith (Australia), Joe Root (England), and Kane Williamson (New Zealand), will perform their “One Last Dance” together during this competition, which is expected to be very significant in the history of cricket.

This event may be the last major ICC competition in which all four legends compete together, including the ICC Cricket World Cup. Since the New Zealand legend Martin Crowe dubbed all of these celebrities the “Fab Four” to group them together, they have made significant progress in the world.

However, they are not getting any younger as Virat, who will turn 35 in November, Steve, who is 34, Root, who will turn 33 in December, and Williamson, who is now 33, all have upcoming birthdays. They will be in their late 30s by the time of the 2027 50-over World Cup. In the white-ball scenario, there is a good possibility they wouldn’t be present at the same moment.
