The veteran Australian cricketer Mike Hussey who is commonly called as Mr.cricket for his remarkable consistency picked an all time fearsome IPL XI in which several superstars were named. The southpaw is the batting coach of Chennai Super Kings which is the most successful and consistent franchise in IPL history
The Indian vice captain Rohit Sharma is one of the successful captains in the Indian premiere league. He has won 4 trophies in 7 years. He has won the IPL for a record number of 5 times which is the most by any player. The Sun Risers from Hyderabad captain David Warner will partner Rohit Sharma at the top of the order to destroy the opposition bowlers.
The middle RCB duo Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers will be waiting to unleash at #3 and #4 respectively. The duo has 9 hundred run partnership between them in the IPL history and there are one of the dreadful pairs for the opposition teams.
The middle order will be manned by the 3 time IPL winning captain MS Dhoni who also happens to be the captain of the team. The two all rounders in Hardik Pandya and Andre Russell will look after the finishing duties with the bat which is a bread and butter for both these batsmen.

The bowling line will have the Indian pace bowling duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The 21 year old Rashid Khan will lead the spin bowling along with vastly experienced Yuzvendra Chahal. The team has as many as 6 bowling options which is a must in the modern day T20 cricket. The #2 batsman in the T20Is in KL Rahul was named as the 12th man by Mike Hussey.
