Former Afghanistan cricket team captain Rashid Khan prepared a list of his top five T20 players ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. In an interaction with the ICC Digital Media, Khan listed his top five T20 cricketers just like the West Indies cricket team captain Kieron Pollard and the Australian cricket team’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell had done before.
Khan decided against picking himself in the list. His list features two players from India and a player each from New Zealand, West Indies and South Africa. The two Indian stars present on the list prepared by Rashid Khan are the current Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and the current Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
Both Kohli and Pandya have the ability to win a match single-handedly. They are also excellent fielders and have performed well for the Indian cricket team in the various formats of the game. Also, they are two of the few Indian players to have represented only one franchise in the Indian Premier League history. Kohli has played for Royal Challengers Bangalore team, while Hardik Pandya’s home has been the Mumbai Indians team in the Indian Premier League.
Rashid Khan selects Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson in his list
The Afghan all-rounder then selected his IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad’s captain Kane Williamson on his list. The South African name on his list was none other than AB de Villiers, while the name from the West Indies cricket team is the captain Kieron Pollard.
