The famous Hindi broadcaster and commentator, Aakash Chopra, has chosen the T20 XI of all time among players who cannot perform in the latest game formats.
The T20 match entered into the calculation through domestic tournaments in England. This theme was slowly taken around the world like wildfire before the T20I match was first played between Australia and New Zealand in 2006.
However, some great players in the past will definitely like the action of the T20 game. Therefore, Chopra decided to call the XI ranks of all time which could not be displayed in the shortest game format.
Most of the players belong to the golden era of the 80s and 90s. It’s no surprise that the five West Indian features in Chopra’s player choice, starring Gordon Greenidge, Brian Lara, Joel Garner, Sir Viv Richards and Sir Gary Sobers.
Three out of five West Indians in the line are part of an invincible army that has dominated the world cricket for decades.
Chopra included three players from the famous all-round quartet, namely Kapil Dev, Imran Khan and Ian Botham, excluding Richard Hadlee.
Together with Imran, Chopra also added ‘Sultan Swing’ Wasim Akram from Pakistan. Barry Richards from South Africa and Andy Flower from Zimbabwe represented the African contingent in the line.
In addition, the team was captained by the captain of the 1992 World Cup winner, Imran Khan, while Flower wore gloves on the side.
Here are the lines:
Gordon Greenidge, Barry Richards, Brian Lara, Sir Viv Richards, Kapil Dev, Imran Khan (c), Sir Ian Botham, Sir Gary Sobers, Andy Flower (wk), Wasim Akram, Joel Garner.
