The all-time eleven that was selected by Dean Jones in the Global T20 Canada saw players from even yesteryear make their presence. While some of the players haven’t even played a single T20 before, Jones believes that they have the ability to adapt to the situation.

The team sees an Australian – West Indies opening combination with Matthew Hayden and Gordon Greenidge. The West Indies duo of Sir Viv Richards and Brian Lara alongside Martin Crowe form the middle order.

Indian wicket keeper MS Dhoni is the lone Indian in the side. Meanwhile, Sir Ian Botham is also the only all-rounder in the eleven.

The fast bowlers contingent includes the trio of Wasim Akram, Curtly Ambrose and Joel Garner with the Australian legspinner Shane Warne being the specialist spinner.

Dean Jones’ T20 XI: Matthew Hayden, Gordon Greenidge, Sir Vivian Richards, Brian Lara, Martin Crowe, Ian Botham, MS Dhoni, Shane Warne, Wasim Akram, Curtly Ambrose, Joel Garner.
