Former Indian all-rounder and cricket expert Irfan Pathan has formed his IPL Dream Team. In this team, Irfan Pathan has removed Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli and Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma.
In IPL 2020, Kohli took his team to the playoffs and Rohit claimed his fifth IPL title. Despite this, both these veterans have not got a place in Pathan's IPL 2020 team.
The journey of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) has ended on 10 November. In the final match played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals by five wickets and won the title for the fifth time.
After the end of the 13th season of IPL, many former players and cricket experts formed their own IPL 2020 team. Now Irfan Pathan's name has also been added to this list.
Irfan Pathan took opener KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan in his IPL 2020 Dream Team. He said, "I will not take David Warner opener, because only four foreign players are to be picked."
For number 3, Pathan selected Suryakumar Yadav of Mumbai Indians. The former Indian pacer praised Suryakumar's batting. It was a memorable season for him under the leadership of Rohit Sharma.
Keeping AB de Villiers in the middle order, Irfan Pathan named Three Dimension player Kieron Pollard as the captain of IPL 2020. He said, "I would like Kairan Pollard to bat at number five."
He will also be the captain of my team. I had a choice as Hardik Pandya, but he is not bowling. Pollard will also play the captaincy role with bowling. He is a great fielder, so I will choose the three dimensional player. '
He completed the team with Marcus Stoinis, Rahul Teotia, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kagiso Rabada, Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
