For the first time in years, the world will witness a star-studded battle between Asia XI and World XI on the cricket field. While ICC does not organize such matches but it has given a special approval to Bangladesh Cricket Board to host these games and celebrate the 100th anniversary of their nation’s founder, Sheikh Mujib Rahman. BCB even asked the BCCI to send five of its star players to take part in the proceedings.

The dates of the two T20 matches were announced recently and unfortunately, a lot of big names will miss this contest owing to their international commitments. India, South Africa, England, Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand will be busy competing in different formats which is why the World XI and Asia XI will not have the best possible playing combinations.

However, given that the Asia World XI vs World XI series is taking place after a long time, the organizers will try their best to assemble good squads.

Here is the best World XI that can take on Asia XI in this series:

1. Chris Gayle

The Universe Boss, Chris Gayle will open the innings for the World XI. Since this is a T20 match, Gayle can be backed to perform well and decimate the opposition bowlers. The left-handed batsman has been away from international cricket but he has continued to play in the T20 leagues worldwide.

He was recently a part of the Mzansi Super League and Bangladesh Premier League which shows that he has been playing around and will be in good shape to represent the World XI in this series.

Given how destructively he has batted in the T20 format, he has developed a huge fan base hence, he will be one of the major attractions of this unique T20 series between Asia XI and World XI.
