As the T20 World Cup 2021 is just days away, all the cricket experts, analysts, and supporters have been discussing – “which side will be awarded the title” and “which player would rule the competition”. Similarly, Australia’s star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has selected Top 5 players in his World T20 XI.

Maxwell chose his top five in the provided framework and ensured that all departments were thoroughly examined. First and foremost, the Australian picked star spinner Rashid Khan, who has ruled the globe with his pure talent. Khan has always been regarded as one of the most demanded talents in various T20 tournaments across the world.

Maxwell then picked Andre Russell for his team, claiming that he can “bring much to his squad.” Russell is well-known among fans as one of the strongest hitters of the ball, having scored 6405 runs in 382 T20 outings. Proceeding on to his third choice, the all-rounder went for Ben Stokes.

And further Went on to pick English All-Rouder, Ben Stokes, and stated that – “He can provide magic to the play on any given occasion, and his on-point effort with both batting and bowling may put him in high demand“. In 148 T20 games, he has scored 2865 runs at an average of more than 24.

Moving forward,  Glenn Maxwell picked Australia’s great batsman, Adam Gilchrist, at 4th place. He is regarded as being one of the world’s greatest wicketkeeper batters. In reality, he was also the one who started the revolution for this position.

The 32-year-old has finally included Shaun Tait in his top 5 World T20 XI players. “Having played against him, I know how quick he was. Even at the back end of his career, he was bowling absolute rockets. I think he’d certainly strike fear into any batter at the other end,” said Maxwell.
