Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has picked his ultimate T20 international eleven in an interview with The Metro.
Flintoff had a few interesting picks in his side as he included a mix of retired cricketers and those who are active on the international circuit. He has picked three Indian players in the team in form of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin.
While he picked former England teammate Marcus Trescothick and ex-New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum as his two openers, Flintoff put Kohli and Tendulkar in the middle-order.
Freddie has two power packed allrounders in Andrew Symonds and Ben Stokes, he gave MS Dhoni a miss and picked Adam Gilchrist as his wicketkeeper-batsman while the bowling unit has two off-spinners Sri Lankan great Muttiah Muralitharan and Indian spin ace, Ravichandran Ashwin.
He has included just two frontline fast bowlers in his ultimate XI, Pakistani legend Wasim Akram and former England pacer Darren Gough.
