All-time IPL XI : The final nominees

ESPNcricinfo staff
Five phases of voting and over 220,000 votes later, we have the final nominees for our all-time IPL XI

After over a month of polling, spread over five phases, we have our long list of 31 probables to pick the final IPL all-time XI from. Apart from the response being overwhelming throughout the five phases, our readers have fared well in adhering to the restriction of picking only four overseas players in the final XI. Accordingly, there are 14 overseas players - five of them allrounders - and 17 Indians on this list, from which our panel will vote to decide the final XI.
