My Favourite T20 11 (Australia- Team One of Eight)

In a Nutshell

I have compiled a team of my favourite players from eight different countries in alphabetical order. To be eligible for selection a player must have played at least one T20 game for their country. To be a Captain of the team a player must have Captained a T20 team at the very least for a domestic T20 team. Find out who made my All Time T20 favourite players for Australia!

Opening Batsman

Matthew Hayden may have only played nine T20 internationals, but he made a huge impact. Somehow, he managed to average 51.33 runs per innings and had a strike rate of 143.93.

Wicketkeeper/Opening Batsman

Adam Gilchrist was a quality wicketkeeper for Australia in the T20 form of the game. Despite only averaging just over 20 runs per innings opening the batting, he scored runs quickly, which is what T20 is all about. The fact that he had a strike rate of over 140 is impressive.

Batting Allrounders

Moises Henriques has an average of 63 runs batting at number three in T20 international cricket. He Captained the Sydney Sixers when they won the 20/20 Big Bash in Australia. He should play more for Australia.
Andrew Symonds was suited to batting at number 4 in T20 cricket, as he averaged 53.2 runs per innings, scoring runs quickly.
Steve Smith averages over 30 runs per innings batting at number five and has 17 wickets in 42 games for Australia. He is right handed and bowls leg spin bowler.

All Rounder

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.

Middle Order Batsman

Cameron White has averaged 56 runs batting at number seven with an impressive strike rate of 140.

Bowlers

Mitchell Johnson took 38 wickets in 30 T20 matches. He was a valuable left arm fast medium bowler.
Sean Abbott may have only played four T20 international matches, but he has an impressive economy rate of 6.1 runs per over, which shows that he slows the opposition run rate down.
Cameron Boyce is an impressive right arm leg break bowler. Expect him to add to his eight wickets in seven matches.
Ben Hilfenhaus took nine wickets in seven matches and had an impressive economy rate of 6.19.
