Glad to see Wanindu Hasaranga @Wanindu49 and Rashid Khan @rashidkhan_19 together in a team.
Wouldn't that be just amazing!
These two are best spinners-allorounders IMO.Advertisement
Fast-bowling ones are Ben Stokes, Hardik Pandya and Jason Holder. https://t.co/fH5YZNYkEy

Good team. Think Shanaka could have sneaked in but don't know his LPL stats, and it's really hard to make a case against the selected middle order. https://t.co/zJFeZb1GhJ

Incredibly all-round team. Has everything you could ask from a T20 team except maybe offspin. But you wouldn't need any other spin when you have Rashid Khan https://t.co/h0mc2tVfXq
