India's hotshot commentator Harsha Bhogle has picked his XI for 2016 and it is way different from ICC XI. He has gone on to find a proper balance between batsmen and bowlers in the team as it is the key for any team.

Bhogle has added the Australian opener David Warner, who has been featuring in the most of the sides in recent times. The number two slot has been booked by England's Alex hales, who was having a stiff competition with Rohit Sharma in the finding the spot but Hales' consistency has put Sharma aside. 

The side will be led by Virat Kohli, on the other hand, Australian skipper didn't find a spot in the XI as England’s Joe Root being preferred ahead, Smith. To add some additional pace, Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews and England all-rounder Ben Stokes have been included in the squad and that will also provide a settled lower order.

Jos Buttler has been preferred over South Africa's Quinton de Kock simply for his finishing abilities. Australia's pace spearhead, Mitchell Starc has been picked as the lead pacer along with India's yorker specialist Jasprit Bumrah whose death bowling skills don't need any judgment.

Specialist limited over bowlers Sunil Narine and Imran Tahir are the clear selections due to their consistency in getting wickets with being economical as well.
