Meanwhile, a famous Pakistani journalist decided to come up with a unique T20I XI featuring both India and Pakistan players. It seems to be quite an interesting T20I XI having both players of India and Pakistan.

He further asked the fans and followers that if at all there is a match between Indo-Pak against the Rest of the World series, what would be their Indo-Pak XI in the T20I format.

“Rohit Sharma, Babar Azam, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Mohammad Rizwan, Hardik Pandya, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Jasprit Bumrah. If we have an Indo-Pak vs Rest of the World series, what would be your Indo-Pak XI in T20I format?,” the journalist tweeted.
