    T20I cricket is quickly becoming one of the top formats at the international level. More and more nations are playing T20I matches these days. ICC has tried its best to expand the sport globally with the 20-over format. Fans would have noticed that some lesser-known nations from different parts of the world are regularly playing T20Is in the modern era.

    The growth of this format has allowed the cricketers more opportunities to play the sport. Some players of the top nations do not get opportunities to play for their country, prompting them to move to another nation. On the other hands, there are a few players of some new cricketing nations who are so talented that the higher-ranked teams pick them in their squads.

    Over the last five years, there have been four players who represented two different nations in the shortest format of the game. Here’s a look at those four names.
