"There's no I in team" but this side comprised of 11 of the most selfish and self-obsessed cricketers would score a lot of runs, take a lot of wickets and drive opponents, fans, commentators and each other crazy.

A selfish batsman who wants to bat all day and score runs is crucial to any side, while a bowler who wants to bowl all day is a captain's dream.

However, sometimes in the midst of this pursuit of individual success and achievement, players' reputations can get smeared and the best interests of the overall team can get pushed aside.
