    Afridi and AB Devilliers are the most loved cricketers globally.

    Then IPL mercenaries Gayle and Bravo are also loved but they have some haters as well due to their antics.

    Rest of the team will be built on personal preference. For EG: someone like Sachin is the most loved cricketer to have ever played because of the sheer number of his fans however he has a lot of haters as well so depends on preference.
