Who makes it to the IPL XI for 2016? Here are ESPNcricinfo's picks, keeping in mind the four-overseas-players rule
Far from a towering, inspiring, regal presence, Angelo Mathews just stood and watched as England steamrolled his side once again
Poor form in the IPL, and the selectors' decision to reward consistent domestic performers such as Faiz Fazal and Yuzvendra Chahal, resulted in the omission of Hardik Pandya and Pawan Negi for the Zimbabwe tour
Mustafizur Rahman has been a conspicuous success on the field in his first IPL season, but has had to overcome a number of challenges off it, including homesickness and an inability to speak English
T20 has produced a breed of player who with his imagination, athleticism and technical mastery proves that scoring prodigiously and fast does not have to involve massive risk-taking
