ICC has realeased a list of T20 World Cup most valuable players. No Indian player has made it to the XI released by the ICC. Pakistan’s Babar Azam has been named as the skipper of the team following his iconic leadership display at the T20 World Cup.
The Virat Kohli-led India started the T20 World Cup in UAE with the favourites tag but they were knocked out of the tournament after the ordinary performance in the Super 12 phase.
According to ICC the side was pulled together by a selection panel featuring commentators, former international players, and journalists.
“As with any team selection there will be varying opinions, and robust discussion on the final composition of the squad. The panel respects that, and we encourage the strong debate that will ensue. This team was incredibly difficult to select over such a highly competitive tournament. Selections were based predominantly on the Super 12 onward to the final,” said convenor Ian Bishop about the team.
