The Men's T20 World Cup has begun.

We have seen stars perform and unsung names shine in the spotlight.

We asked you to vote for your World Cup dream team. We had more than 30.000 votes. This is the team that you chose.

1. Babar Azam (Pakistan), a choice of 56% of readers

T20s: 63, Runs: 2,281 Average: 47.52 Strike-rate 130.34

Solid start. In 2021, the Pakistan captain and opener was in great form. Only Mohammad Rizwan scored more T20 international runs than him. You can expect classic shots and well-paced innings.

2. Jos Buttler (England) - 76%

T20s: 84; Runs: 1,913; Average: 31.88; Strike-rate: 138.82; Dismissals: 46

The most popular player. Some wanted Buttler to be in the middle order as a finisher. However, he was still the most-loved opener after Babar. So he is at the top.

3. Virat Kohli (India) - 76%

T20s: 91, Runs: 3216; Average 52.72; Strike rate: 138.56

The run machine. Look at that average! While Kohli is the Indian Premier League's opener, he plays three innings for India. He was by some distance the most popular player between three and four.

4. Glenn Maxwell (Australia), - 53%

T20s: 73. Runs: 1,798. Average: 31.54. Strike-rate is 157.58. Wickets are 32. Average: 26.09 Economy: 7.45

The Big Show. Maxwell's day is as devastating as it gets with the bat. His off-spin can also be a useful option. He received more votes at 4 than any other player, even though his favorite position was 5.

5. Liam Livingstone (England), - 41%

T20s 10; Runs 207; Average 29.57; Strike rate 165.60

Livingstone is a newcomer to the England game, but his explosive hitting and speed have earned him a spot in your team. You can see why he has such a high strike rate. He is also very skilled with the ball.

6. Kieron Pollard (West Indies) - 49%

T20s 90; Runs 1,410; Average 24.31; Strike rate: 136.49, Wickets 38; Average 27.73; Economy 8.45

Mr. Experienced. The West Indies captain, who has played in more than 500 games of the format around the globe, brings a lot of experience to your team. He's a dangerous batsman, a great fielder and can be very accurate with the ball. Pollard was most popular at seven. However, we moved him up one spot because Shakib Al Hasan from Bangladesh, the all-rounder, wasn't among our top 11.

7. Rashid Khan (Afghanistan), - 74%

T20s 52; Wickets 99; Average 12.21; Economy 6.18

You can't go wrong with the leg-spinner. Rashid, who is only 23, is the fourth highest wicket-taker in T20 internationals. He seems set to break a record. Rashid is one of the hardest bowlers to score against because of his variations, skiddy trajectory, and unwavering accuracy.

8. Mitchell Starc (Australia), - 45%

T20s: 42, Wickets 53; Average 21.60; Economy 7.24

Each side desires a left-arm option. Starc is a deadly player with both the old and new ball.

9. Pat Cummins (Australia), - 42%

T20s 31; Wickets 38; Average 20.52; Economy 6.84

Perhaps the surprise choice. Cummins may not be someone you immediately think of in T20 cricket. He is 64th in the bowing ranking. However, his ability to bowl with pace and mix up his length has earned him a place in your elite team.

10. Adil Rashid (England), - 57%

T20s 64; Wickets 69; Average: 23.43. Economy: 7.43

Eoin Morgan is Eoin's number one man. Rashid is the bowler England turns to when they need a wicket. You can do the same. Two leg-spinners on the same team? ...?

11. Jasprit Bumrah (India) - 73%

T20s 51; Wickets 59; Average 20.62; Economy 6.68

Pace bowler Bumrah was bound to make it, wasn't? His unorthodox style makes him hard to face, and his yorkers are perfect. He is able to bowl at the top and at the end of an innings and can also be a threat in the middle overs.

Who has missed it?

In reality, the vote was clear: West Indies opener Andre Russell (38%), South Africa opener Quinton De Kock (29%), and New Zealand batter Kane Williamson (28%) were closest to making it into your team.

It is clear that you don’t care much about the official rankings.

England's Dawid Molan, the number one batter in the world, South Africa's Tabraiz Shamsi, the leading left-arm spinner, and Wanindu Hasaranga from Sri Lanka, the top-ranked leg-spinner, are all out.

Shakib Al Hasan (27%), Eoin Morgan (26%), Shaheen Afridi (22%), Dawid Malan (22%), Trent Boult (20%), KL Rahul (18%), Rohit Sharma (18%), Chris Gayle (18%), Mohammad Nabi (18%), Shadab Khan (18%), Tim Southee (17%), Aaron Finch (16%), Jonny Bairstow (16%), Kagiso Rabada (15%), Jason Roy (15%), Devon Conway (14%), Mohammad Rizwan (13%), Wanindu Hasaranga (13%), David Warner (7%), Ashton Agar (6%), Mujeeb Ur Rahman (6%), Adam Zampa (6%), Tabraiz Shamsi (5%), Mustafizur Rahman (5%), Haris Rauf (3%).
