- Dhoni named all-time XI
- The team consists of 3 players from India
- Shakib was also included in the team
India’s master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Pakistan’s Saeed Anwar are the openers in the team. Tendulkar holds the record for most ODIs. To this day, many of Tendulkar’s records have not been broken. Tendulkar also holds the record for most runs in ODI cricket.
Saeed Anwar is known for his aggressive batting style. For a long time, Anwar had the highest individual score in ODI cricket. Coming in at number three after the opening alliance is another opener. Chris Gayle is third on the team. Chris Gayle, the best all-rounder, has the ability to win the game alone.
India captain Virat Kohli is the next batsman in the middle order. Kohli is considered to be Tendulkar’s successor in world cricket. The player is equally brilliant in all three formats. All-rounder Jacques Kallis is at number five behind Kohli. Kallis is one of the greatest all-rounders of all time in world cricket.
Shakib has announced former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the captain of the team. The Shakib team made the announcement on SportsKeda’s YouTube channel. Dhoni, who is known as the best finisher, will go down to number six for the team. Shakib has announced his name at number seven. It is undisputed that Shakib is the best all-rounder in the world.
The XI has a pace squad consisting of two spinners and two pacers. Former Pakistan captain and all-rounder Wasim Akram is one of the pacers. Akram was a batsman’s nightmare during his playing days. Australian pacer Glenn McGrath, who is synonymous with accuracy, is second. McGrath was the bowler who rocked the batsmen with his swing bowling.
The team’s spinners are Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan, the greatest wicket – takers of all time in world cricket. It was a big headache for all the important batsmen in world cricket when both were active. Most of the team announced by Shakib are Indians. MS Dhoni is the captain and wicket-keeper of the team. Dhoni has captained India to ODI and T20 World Cup victories.
