They are now more active on their social media accounts and going live on Instagram with teammates. Also, cricketers have started a trend of picking their all-time 11.

Surprisingly, his team is missing some of the names fans would expect him to add. 36-year old named Brett Lee the captain of his team. The greatest fielder of all time Jonty Rhodes also featured his team.
