Two players from Pakistan — Shadab Khan and Shaen Shah Afreedi also make the team, with South Africa’s Anrich Notje, SikandarRaza of Zimbabwe and Glenn Phillips of New Zealand all represented.

Kohli turned on the heat in this T20 World Cup, producing at a major tournament once again. He finished as the highest run-scorer in this tournament, with 296 runs to his name at a sensational average of 98.66, smashed four fifties, including a magical knock of 82* against Pakistan in the Super 12.

India’s number four, Suryakumar, had an almost equally incredible outing as Kohli. He entertained everyone with his aggressive batting style throughout the course of the tournament, amassing 239 runs at an incredible strike rate of 189.68.
