A recent video posted by the Rajasthan Royals franchise in the social media platforms is doing rounds. The veteran South African cricketer, David Miller selected his all time favorite squad for the Indian Premier League team and decided to put the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s star player, AB de Villiers as their captain. Miller chose a squad of his choice and did not put himself as the captain of it.

David started his IPL journey by playing for Kings XI Punjab. During his play for KXIP, Miller managed to bang an admirable century which made it to the history books. His time with the Punjab team was one of his golden years in his career. The Rajasthan Royals franchise had bought him during the IPL auction ahead of 2020. They retained this player for the next IPL season as well (2021).

The West Indies opener, Gayle Storm will share a partnership with the South African batsman, Quinton de Kock who Miller describes as the best cricketer in the world who has lasted for the last 5 years.

The famous duo of Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli and ABD are placed on positions 3 and 4. Yuvraj Singh who has achieved the fastest century in T20 cricket was found at spot number 5. The first all-rounder spot was to Lance Klusener at 6 and the Mumbai Indians captain, Kieron Pollard fills the second all-rounder position in the squad.

As a lone spinner, Imran Tahir will join the bowling line with the Australian pacer, Brett Lee. Dale Steyn and Lasith Malinga managed to get a spot in the squad. This year David Miller didn’t get a chance to play for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2021.

David Miller’s All-Time Favorite T20 XI Squad: Chris Gayle, Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers  (Captain), Yuvraj Singh, Lance Klusener, Kieron Pollard, Imran Tahir, Brett Lee, Dale Steyn, and Lasith Malinga
