ICC Hall of Fame inductee, Mahela Jayawardena has nominated the first five players he would pick if he was in charge of selecting a Dream T20 side, and declared which former great he would call on if he could choose one star at their prime to join them.

While Jayawardena forged a magnificent career for Sri Lanka in all three forms of the game, the 44-year-old now spends much of his time following 20-over cricket with his current role as coach of IPL side Mumbai Indians.

In that role Jayawardena sees the best 20-over players in the world up close and personal on a daily basis, and the Sri Lanka legend revealed the first five players he would pick if he could select a Dream XI on the most recent episode of The ICC Review. Players are Rashid Khan (Afghanistan), Shaheen Afridi (Pakistan), Jasprit Bumrah (India), Jos Buttler (England) and Mohammad Rizwan (Pakistan).
