Picking "Best XIs" is a largely self-gratifying process. Everyone has a different opinion. Everyone has their own choices. You are right, he is right, she is right. You are wrong, he is wrong, she is wrong. It’s an exercise based on personal inclinations, tendencies and proclivities, yet it’s irresistibly popular.
As many people appear keen to often point out, it’s unlikely such a team is discussed in the pub on every Friday night of every week, but such discussions definitely do occur despite their total irrelevance.
Bleacher Report have thus selected the world’s best T20 cricket team, giving greater weight to performances in international cricket, but still giving substantial thought to cricketers whose success is limited largely to domestic tournaments. It is these tournaments that are at the vertex of change and innovation and where stars are born, so it would be ignorant to not consider them.
Conditions play an important role in the composition of any side, but we believe our team is capable of performing well in a variety of circumstances and settings.
Of course, you will disagree with many of the selections, and please do rant and rage in the comment section below.
Just remember that you will be wrong—in our eyes, at least.
