Virender Sehwag picks his best XI of IPL 2020!

IPL 2020 will go down in the history as one of the best and memorable tournaments in its history.

The tournament was so competitive during the league stages that the last team still had 12 points. The cricketing community is still dealing with the hangover of this interesting tournament.

Reflecting back on the tournament, former Indian opener, the legendary Virender Sehwag picked his best playing XI of the IPL 2020. Sehwag’s playing XI and the positions in which he has certain players are extremely shocking and interesting.

Here’s Sehwag’s IPL XI:

  1. KL RAHUL (WK)
  2. DEVDUTT PADIKKAL
  3. SURYAKUMAR YADAV
  4. VIRAT KOHLI (C)
  5. DAVID WARNER
  6. AB DE VILLIERS
  7. KAGISO RABADA
  8. MOHAMMED SHAMI
  9. JASPRIT BUMRAH
  10. YUZVENDRA CHAHAL
  11. RASHID KHAN

He further named Ishan Kishan as 12th man and Jofra Archer as 13th man!

The first shocking choice made by Sehwag is obviously to make Virat Kohli the captain of his team, keeping in mind that Kohli didn’t necessarily have the best season. Further, he made Kohli an important entity but assigned him a position at number 4 for which he isn’t much known for.

Sehwag then had David Warner and AB de Villiers play at five and six which again aren’t their strong positions. Warner looked phenomenal in the tournament but only as an opener. De Villiers, on the other hand, has been great as a middle-order batsman but not necessarily at number 6 as a finisher.

Sehwag has the orange cap winner KL Rahul as his opener. He then has ‘Emerging player of the year’ Devdatt Padikkal as his another opener. He has Suryakumar play at number 3 where he has looked phenomenal for the Mumbai Indians.

Sehwag has then interestingly played five complete bowlers rather than four bowlers and an all-rounder. The trio of purple cap winner Kagiso Rabada, second-highest wicket-taker Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Shami, will be his pace bowlers. He has Yuzvendra Chahal and Rashid Khan as his spinners.
