Ever since the inception of Twenty20 cricket, Asian teams have always been dominant. Out of the six world T20 tournaments that have been played so far, three have been won by the Asian teams. Asian teams have produced some of the biggest T20 stars of the world. India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh are always highly regarded in this format and with the emergence of Afghanistan that list has just got longer.
From Babar Azam to Rashid Khan and Jasprit Bumrah, there are many T20 stars among Asian countries that are playing the shortest format of the game. In our article, we take a look at the current best T20 players who can form the best XI from Asian teams.
Here’s the best Asian T20 XI of the current players
1. Rohit Sharma
The man with the joint-fastest T20I century, Rohit Sharma just walks into the side. He played a good part in India winning the inaugural World T20 in South Africa and since then he hasn’t looked back in this format.
To add to his international achievements, he has also led Mumbai Indians to four IPL titles and is the most successful IPL captain and player of all time. He is the third leading run-scorer in the history of the IPL only behind Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli.
He is the leading run-scorer in T20I cricket and 3rd on the list of most sixes in T20Is. This makes it very easy to pick him in the Asian best XI.
