New Delhi: Former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer on Sunday picked his all-time IPL team and appointed wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni as its captain.
Jaffer’s team’s feature opener Rohit Sharma, current Indian skipper Virat Kohli, all-rounder Hardik Pandya, spinner R. Ashwin, and pacer Jasprit Bumrah as seven domestic players.
The foreign players spot have been occupied by West Indies’ swashbuckling batsman Chris Gayle, all-rounder Andre Russell, Afghanistan’s spinner Rashid Khan, and Sri Lanka’s veteran pacer Lasith Malinga. Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been picked as 12th man by Jaffer.
Earlier this month, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to postpone the IPL to April 15, 2020, as a precautionary measure against COVID-19 outbreak.
The board also assured that it will work in unison with the Sports Ministry and will adhere to the guidelines issued.
The 13th edition of IPL was scheduled to commence from March 29.
