In a Nutshell
I have compiled a team of players with one player from 11 of the T20 international teams from the Year 2005 onwards. To be eligible for selection a player must have played some form of international cricket for their country. Find out who made the jigsaw puzzle piece together!

Brendon McCullum from New Zealand was a quality batsman to watch when he was in full flight. He was capable of changing the game with his big hitting. Despite the fact that its risky to be an attacking batter, he knew when to endeavour to hit fours and sixers when needed. There’s no doubt he was adaptable and had great judgement. Along with being an outstanding batsman he was a decent wicketkeeper.
Chris Gayle is a player that is well known, when you think about T20 cricket He is a player that is well known in cricketing circles. He is a batsman that’s capable of hitting fours and sixers constantly. He has experience playing in different countries domestic competitions, eg for the Sydney Thunder in the Twenty20 Big Bash in Australia. He opens the batting and does an extremely good job at it. He is a left hand batter, but bowls right arm off spin and has taken 17 wickets and international level for the West Indies.
Virat Kohli is possibly India’s best ever T20 player. He has an average of 50.8 in 82 T20 internationals.
AB de Villiers was a player that made everyone in the South African cricket team better. He is an outstanding person and he is extremely humble. He is the sort of person that leads by example.
Tom Cooper was a quality batter that deserves to be regarded highly than he is as he is definitely one of the Netherlands most well known players. He is a player that has played first class cricket for South Australia since 2008!
Shane Watson was a quality allrounder for Australia. Most suited to batting number six and also happened to be a useful fast-medium bowler who took 48 wickets for Australia.
Ben Stokes should be renowned as one of the best all rounders in the world who is most suited to batting number seven. Shakib Al Hasan should be considered as one of the best players to have played the game for Bangladesh. He is a left arm spinner and a useful batsman.
Shahid Afridi from Pakistan was a good leg spinner who could bat as well!
Chaminda Vaas of Sri Lanka was a decent lower order batsman, but was most well known as a left arm fast-medium bowler.
Boyd Rankin is a fast-medium bowler that is a good bowler for Ireland in T20 cricket as he has taken 55 wickets at international level for Ireland.
