ICC World T20 2016: Team of the Week
- Here are the best players from week one of the Super-10 stage.
The 2016 ICC World T20 has seen the conclusion of the first phase of matches and each team has played at least two games each. After the first week of matches, the big winners are New Zealand, who have won all three of their matches and West Indies who have won two out of two.Those two results mean that pre-tournament favourites, India have only won one of two matches, as have England, Australia and South Africa. Pakistan on the other hand have won one out of three and will have to hope other results go their way if they are to make it to the next round.Despite being played on completely different conditions from city to city, the first week saw some memorable performances from quite a few players.Here is the Team of the Week comprising of those players:
#1 Chris Gayle
Chris Gayle might not have had an opportunity to bat in front of his home crowd in Bengaluru but his first innings of the tournament was so destructive that it has guaranteed his inclusion into this side. With West Indies needing a stiff target in their game against England, Gayle did what he does best and blew the opposition out of the water.
His century, which made him the only man to have scored two T20I tons, also broke a slew of other records, including fastest World T20 hundred and helped him equal Brendon McCullum as the player with the most fifty plus scores in T20Is.
