Former Australian Cricketer Dean Jones made his choice of players in his all-time T20 XI.

Surprisingly, Jones also included players who have not played in the format. In fact, many of those in the list have not been a part of the format previously, with only MS Dhoni having any actual experience to speak of, while two Australians - Matthew Hayden and Shane Warne - also know the format rather well. Even so, Jones believes that these players have the potential to adapt and adjust to any ensuing situation.

Former England all-rounder Ian Botham has been chosen as the all-rounder here as well, while Shane Warne has been picked up as a specialist spinner.
