Afridi picks his all-time World Cup XI

Cricket’s showpiece event, the ICC World Cup is merely weeks away from commencement as the top sides on the planet compete for the ultimate prize. As part of the build-up for the mega-tournament, fans and cricket experts alike have proceeded to pick their all-time World Cup teams featuring an eclectic mix of legends.

Going ahead with this trend, Pakistan’s flamboyant cricketer Shahid Afridi also recently disclosed his choices for the superlative all-time World Cup XI. Heavily tinged with a Pakistan flavor to his dream XI, Afridi picked 5 of his compatriots in this squad, and also selected 4 Australians, indicating their dominance in world tournaments.

Perhaps the most surprising entry into Afridi’s list aside from the usual legends like Ricky Ponting, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Jacques Kallis, Wasim Akram and Glenn McGrath, is Virat Kohli. The Indian skipper plays on the no.4 spot for Afridi’s XI.

" Afridi’s team:  "

Saeed Anwar, Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting, Virat Kohi, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Jacques Kallis, Wasim Akram, Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Shoaib Akhtar, Saqlain Mushtaq.
