Indian Premier League

Who would play in an IPL dream team?

Carlyle Laurie

Vic Marks, writing for the Guardian, gives us his pick of four foreign players from the 70s and 80s that would be the best to have in an IPL XI.

There must be Garry Sobers – as he was three or four cricketers in one. Now I get parochial. I always pick Viv Richards, the best batsman I played with or against and the most terrifying one, for any side. Then there is Joel Garner, the meanest of those brilliant West Indian fast bowlers. Lastly I would choose Abdul Qadir. Mystery is a wonderful commodity in any form of the game, but especially in T20.
