West Indies cricket team captain Kieron Pollard recently prepared a list of five cricket players who he feels are the best in men’s T20 cricket. Many fans would know that the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will begin soon, and the West Indies cricket team is the defending champion of the competition.
Before the tournament gets underway in the Middle East, Pollard had an interaction with the ICC Digital Media, where he picked his top five T20 players. The list does not feature the current Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli. Also, the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team and the captain of the Mumbai Indians team, Rohit Sharma did not receive a place in the Top 5.
Unsurprisingly, Kieron started the list with his West Indies cricket teammate Chris Gayle. Many fans consider Gayle as the Universe Boss because of his incredible achievements in the sport of cricket, especially in the shortest format of the game. Gayle would probably feature on the Top 5 T20 players list of any cricketer.
The next two members of the Top 5 list prepared by the current West Indies cricket team captain were former Sri Lankan cricket team captain Lasith Malinga and Caribbean all-rounder Sunil Narine. Both Malinga and Narine have won the ICC T20 World Cup title once in their careers.

Interestingly, Kieron Pollard decided to add one more West Indian name on the list, and he was none other than Pollard himself. But before that Kieron added the name of former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. There were no players from South Africa, Australia, England, New Zealand, Pakistan or Bangladesh in the Top 5.
