Principles of selecting a 20-20 cricket team

The idea of an 'icon' player didn't work.
It was unwise to pay too much for single cricketing skills.
Indian players cost more than foreign players for comparable skills.
Wicket-keepers are not so valuable in T20.
Bowling all-rounders might be more valuable than batting all-rounders.
Likely match-winners were paid more.
Young and fit all-rounders offer the greatest value.
Gamble on youth, and on Australians.
