The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is around the corner, with fans and experts equally excited to see some of the big stars of world cricket back in action after a long time. In the build-up to the tournament, experts have started analysing the strengths and weaknesses of each team and also the players to watch out for. Joining in the trend, former Australia spinner Brad Hogg also came up with his ‘Best XI of IPL 2020’, which had some of the big names missing — with the most notable ones being MS Dhoni, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle. Explaining the reason behind their exclusion, Hogg said that they are a “little bit old”. However, he added that they could prove him wrong with their performance and maybe find a place in his final XI at the end of the tournament.
I haven’t got MS Dhoni or AB de Villiers or Chris Gayle in there. They are a little bit long in the tooth. Little bit old. But they can turn things around and be in my final XI at the end of the tournament,Hogg said in his YouTube vlog.
