    SportsMax, ahead of the start of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL), has been taking a look at what an all-time T20 team would look like.

    In doing so, as the sports broadcasting powerhouse has done with its Ultimate XI Football, Test and ODI cricket teams, the SportsMax Zone has enlisted the help of a panel of experts, as well as a voting public to help with the decision-making.

    Fans, called Fanalysts have a 30% weighted vote on who makes SportsMax’s Ultimate XI T20 team, with the SportsMax Zone having another 30% of the vote. The panel of experts’ vote will count for 40% of the overall votes.

    Fanlysts can vote by clicking here or going to SportsMax.tv and just clicking on the Ultimate XI tab at the top of the screen.

    SportsMax.tv has also built a list of profiles where Fanalysts can go to have a look at the careers of the players who have made the SportsMax Ultimate XI shortlist just in case you want to learn a little more about the players before making your choice.

    Today, a panel of Kerry Scott, former cricketer, Chris Taylor, cricket umpire, commentator and expert, along with Sachin Ramsubhag, cricket commentator, had the unenviable task of whittling down a list of 13 potential openers to a final six for discussion on Friday, where a final pairing will be picked.

    The 13 shortlisted for all-time best T20 openers were Indians, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan; New Zealanders, Martin Guptill and Brendon McCullum; Australians, Aaron Finch, David Warner, and Shane Watson; South African, Quinton de Kock; Sri Lankan, Tillakaratne Dilshan, as well as West Indians, Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, and Lendl Simmons.

    The team were certain there were places for Sharma, Finch, Warner, Gayle, and McCullum.

    However, difficulty arose when it came time to choose one from Lewis, Guptill and Rahul.

    Guptill was the first to go with Scott and Ramsubhag overruling Taylor to go with Rahul over Lewis.

    Meaning the final six for discussion are Gayle, Sharma, Rahul, Finch, Warner, and McCullum.
