Desperate times need desperate measures as they say. In the absence of sporting action currently, the latest developments in the world of cricket are few and far between each other.
As a result, social media handles all over the globe are using innovative strategies to engage with their followers, who themselves are under house arrest due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Fox Sports of Australia diligently released the best XI of players, who never featured in the shortest format of the game on Monday. ‘We’ve picked an all-time T20 XI made up exclusively of players who never played the format,’ captioned their post.
Starting in the team are formidable opening pairs of former greats, Mark Waugh and Sir Vivian Richards. Mark Waugh is known for his graceful strokes at the opening slot and is one of the best cover-drivers of the ball ever produced.
Viv Richards during his days revolutionized the art of batting by striking the ball at the rates above 80, a feat unheard of during the yesteryears.
The man with a Test average of almost 100, Australian Hall of Famer Don Bradman, bats at number three in the star-studded team. Following Bradman, at number four, is Windies great Garfield Sobers.
The golden quartet of all-rounders of the by-gone era, featuring Kapil Dev, Ian Botham, Richard Hadlee, and Imran Khan, occupy the four slots in the lower-middle order.
Interestingly, only one spinner in maestro Abdul Qadir makes it to the best T20 lineup who never played the format.
Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Rod Marsh takes up the wicketkeeping duties, while Joel Garner is the only specialist seamer in the lineup. The 1992 World Cup winner, Imran Khan, was chosen as captain of the all-star side.
