By our count, there have roughly been two T20 games played every day of the last decade - over 7000 matches in all. And that's without counting leagues not sanctioned by the ICC, which don't go into official T20 records. All this T20 cricket has often brought together players we never thought we'd see in the same XI. Did we expect Andrew Symonds and Harbhajan Singh to be celebrating together in a blue jersey? Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting opening the batting? Jonny Bairstow and David Warner, Ashes rivals, hugging it out in the sweltering Hyderabad heat?
Here, then, are ten combinations from this decade, some of whom played together and some that have been cooked up by us. The rules:
1. This decade runs from Jan 1, 2010 to Dec 31, 2019
2. "T20 games" refers to all "official" games as mentioned above, covering international and domestic competitions
3. These players should have featured in the same team in a T20 game during this decade.
