With cricket witnessing many legends in all the three departments of the game, it is only natural for many cricketers to pick a team consisting of the finest players ever to grace the game. Former South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis didn’t stay behind as he revealed a team he deems best in his opinion.
For the opening role, the 43-year old picked Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar before naming Ricky Ponting as his number three. The middle order consists of the likes of Virat Kohli, Ab de Villiers and Andrew Flintoff. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been roped in as the wicket-keeper of the side with Shaun Pollock, Shane Warne, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis completing the bowling line-up of the team.
Carrying two wicket-keepers and two World Cup winning captains, the picked unit seems to carry immense strength in its ranks. However, it is interesting to note that the Cape Town born didn’t pick a single player from New Zealand and Sri Lanka. Kallis’ greatest XI goes like this:
Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Virat Kohli, Ab de Villiers, Andrew Flintoff, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Shaun Pollock, Shane Warne, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis
