Shane Warne picks his World T20 XI, Virat Kohli only Indian in the list

New Delhi, June 18: Legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne has declared his best World T20 XI and posted his dream team on his Twitter handle.

Team India's run machine Virat Kohli is the only Indian to have found a place in Warne's dream XI. Virat is in the form of his lifetime and was the leading run scorer in the World T20 and in IPL 9.

Virat's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team mates AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle and Shane Watson also were named in Warne's T20 squad.

Former New Zealand skipper and explosive opener Brendon McCullum has also found a spot, who according to the list will be opening Warne XI along with Gayle.

West Indies all-rounders Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo would be strengthening the team's lower middle order. 

England's wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler has been given the responsibility of keeping in the dream XI. Butler had a fantastic outing in the World T20 and also during the IPL.

The bowling department would be led by left-arm Australian pacer Mitchell Starc, Bangladesh's Mustafizur Rahman while Windies' mystery spinner Sunil Narine is the only player to take care of the spin department.

West Indies are the reigning World T20 champions and all these cricketers named by Warne played a crucial role in the team's victory in WT20 2016. 

Surprisingly, Warne didn't pick Australian opener David Warner who was the second highest run getter in the IPL 9.
