Representing one’s country is a matter of pride. Everyone dreams of making their nation proud. However, not everyone gets to do that. Due to several reasons such as financial issues, poor lifestyle, and lack of opportunities, we see people migrating.

When it comes to cricket, we have seen cricketers migrating or shifting their base to another country. As a matter of fact, several cricketers have played for their country of origin as well as the country they are residing in right now.

Various cricketing nations are rather unlucky to see their players playing for someone else. Even in the ongoing T20 World Cup, several players aren’t playing for their own team. So if one were to make a XI consisting of such players, who’d make it into this side?

In the article, let’s take a look at the best XI of cricketers not playing T20 World Cup for their own country

Devon Conway is currently one of the best Kiwi batters in their T20I squad. However, he is originally a South African by birth. The wicketkeeper-batter was born in Johannesburg.

He has also played for African teams such as the Gauteng and the Lions. He migrated to New Zealand because he wasn’t making an impact in FC cricket for SA. This was a massive step as he took a lot of financial and monetary risks.

Three years after leaving SA, he made his debut for New Zealand. He has never looked back since then. There are a lot of expectations from the aggressive top-order batter ahead of the T20 World Cup.
