If you have deleted your WhatsApp account and you want your contacts back then there is a chance to get back those list of contacts with ease.
You can do with the backup if you have:
1. First uninstall WhatsApp
2. Then reinstall WhatsApp from play store and follow the installation guides
3. Now after installation, launch WhatsApp
• Enter every detail and verify your mobile number. By this way, WhatsApp can sense backup made by your mobile number and Google drive account and after that will popup asking you to recover those from backups
• If any backup is available on your mobile number then WhatsApp will display ‘Restore backup’ screen
• At last, click on Restore and wait until the entire data restoration is over
