The surprising thing is that he did not give place to Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma in this team.

Rashid has played 58 T20Is so far and has taken 105 wickets at an average of 12.92 runs, with an economy rate of a little over six.

Jayawardene said, “For me this bowler is the most important player in T20 cricket and Rashid Khan is a spinner who can bat. He is a No 7 or No 8 batsman and you can use him in different situations depending on your combination. He can also bowl at different stages of an innings such as during the powerplay, in the middle overs and also in the death overs. He is not a bad choice depending on the circumstances, so Rashid would be my first choice.

Regarding Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi, who is ranked 10th in the ICC T20 bowling rankings, Jayawardene said, “I will actually take two more bowlers and the first one will be a left-arm bowler in Shaheen Afridi.” Afridi has played 40 T20Is so far, taking 47 wickets at an average of 24.31 with an economy of 7.75.

He said that he has always admired the bowling of the Indian fast bowler. “Jasprit Bumrah is one player I have always admired because of his ability to bowl at different stages of an innings.
