Dubai – Former India captain Virat Kohli has been included in last year’s ICC Twenty20 team. In addition to Kohli, Indian players Suryakumar Yadav and all-rounder Hardik Pandya have been included in the team which includes world-class players. Kohli’s batting performance in the Twenty20 World Cup 2022 brought him into the team.
Meanwhile, Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam, who is blamed for his poor performances, could not get a place in the ICC team. The difficulty for Babar was that he did not live up to expectations in the Asia Cup and Twenty20 World Cup last year. Jos Buttler, who made England the world champion, is the captain of the ICC team.
Pak opener Muhammad Rizwan, who topped the Twenty20 batting rankings last year, is also in the team. Last year, Rizwan scored ten fifty in Twenty20. Pacer Harris Rauf also joined the team.
