8. Andre Russell (West Indies)
Even though the entire West Indies team has an abundance of X-factor players, Andre Russell is probably the most impactful of them all in T20s with his ability to clear the ropes consistently, bowl at various stages of the match, and field at high traffic positions.
7. Quinton de Kock (South Africa)
The best South African batsman & probably the best keeper-batsman in the world, Quinton de Kock is the most vital cog in the Proteas batting line-up. He may look like a teenager, but he surely is an assassin with the bat as well as with the gloves behind the stumps.
6. Babar Azam (Pakistan)
Undoubtedly Pakistan’s best batsman & the best Pakistani batsman ever according to some experts, all of Pakistan’s expectations would be on the shoulders of their captain, Babar Azam.
5. Kane Williamson (New Zealand)
A successor of MS Dhoni in terms of his captaincy, he is the coolest guy on the field even when the entire stadium is able to feel the pressure. To top it all, he is probably the best batsman New Zealand has ever produced.
4. Hardik Pandya (India)
Hardik Pandya is one asset that Indian cricket has to preserve and nurture in the years to come. He is the best fast bowling all-rounder in India at the moment – a skill set that is rare to find in the craziest cricketing nation.
3. Liam Livingstone (England)
He has played 8 T20Is and scored 206 runs including a solitary hundred at an average of 34.33 and a gigantic strike rate of 167.48, England’s best by far. He also bowls a bit of leg-spin and has added two wickets to his kitty at a bowling economy of 7.2 runs per over.
2. Mitchell Marsh (Australia)
Mitchell Marsh has always had the capability to become one of the best all-rounders Australia has ever produced. He possesses the skill set of a hard-hitting fast-bowling all-rounder, one of the toughest skills to master and achieve success in international cricket.
1. Rashid Khan (Afghanistan)
An absolute no-brainer for this list, Rashid Khan is considered the best white-ball spinner in today’s time. He is one bowler who can cause some of the biggest upsets in this year’s T20 WC.
