ICC’s T20I team of the year included three Pakistani players. While explaining its decision to include Pakistani pacer, Shaheen Afridi ICC said, “It was a year to remember for Shaheen Afridi, especially in the shortest form of the game.

On Rizwan’s inclusion the cricketing body said, “The Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter ruled the roost in 2021 when it came to the shortest format of the game. Apart from his exploits with the bat, he was as solid as ever behind the stumps, playing a key role in Pakistan’s run to the semis during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, where he ended up as the third-highest run-scorer.”

Moreover, ICC also appointed Babar Azam as the skipper of the team and while shedding light on the decision the game’s governing body explained, “The Pakistan skipper was at his classy best in the shortest format in 2021, leaving his best at the T20 World Cup 2021, where he ended the tournament as the leading run-scorer. His captaincy was also praised as he led his team to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman.”
