imagine viv and greenidge in t20s.....probably have strike rates of 300. Viv's strike rate in tests against most countries is close to 70 which for years decades after him was unheard of

Imagine Holding and Big Bird, Parick Patterson, Croft, Marshall, Roberts and Clarke with the luxury of putting their all into 4 overs

big bird would be a multimillionaire, holding too. Patterson might travel but he'd also take wickets as well. Roberts would make t20 bowling into a science that all the other bowlers would follow after he's gone

so if all these imaginations could become real, what would be the all-time WI T20 team?

Gayle
Richards
Sobers
Lara
Pollard
Russell
Narine
Ambrose
Garner
Holding
Pooran

not sure lara would prosper in t20s. He was never one to score his first 50 quickly....his second fifty sometimes used to take 20 or 30 balls but his first 50 was always very watchful.

Pooran?

Evin Lewis scored more T20I runs than him in less matches with a better average and far superior strike rate with 2 tons.

Have you seen Gordon Greenidge bat? He invented the slog and reverse sweeps. GG was as destructive as Richards.

GG must be in lineup.

Pollard won't make the cut if he had to face chin music from 4 prong to get in. Gayle is in not Pooran.

that's true, but im saying he was extremely circumspect at the start. Case in point, when he made the hundred that shocked SA in the 2003 world cup opener, his first 50 took 78 balls......his next fifty from 50 - 100 took only 43 more. But he used to be very circumspect before going to slaughter bowlers.

We need a keeper. Hence Pooran.
Can’t think of another keeper who would be a better batsman in this format. Clyde Walcott?

Maybe Cammie Smith before Greenridge, was Gordon that destructive.

Def Walcott before Pooran because we are now learning the lessons that proper batsmen prosper in T20. I think Gayle, Russell, Bravo, Narine, Badree and perhaps Samuels of the immediate past current specialists.

As brilliant test cricketers as he was I'm not sure that Ambi would have been outstanding T20 player. Maybe he could make the adjustment but in the 50 over game Ambi used to be to metronomic and would go for real runs at the death. Andy Roberts was more likely the pacer who could adjust his game to be a T20 specialist.

Collis King should be one of first names on sheet. But young Clive Lloyd should be up there too. He would probably have developed some Dw Bravo bowling skills as well.
