Throughout the course of the cricketing history, both India and Pakistan continued to unleash sensational talents. Be it bowling or batting, it was never easy to match the prowess of their talents. The fact was recently acknowledged by the former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra who went on to pick his combined Indo-Pak greatest ODI XI.
The spin wizard picked the iconic left-handed duo of Rohit Sharma and Sachin Tendulkar to open the innings. For him, the mind-boggling consistency of Virat Kohli, the ferocity of Javed Miandad and the class of Inzamam-ul-Haq were enough to form the best possible middle-order. Without a surprise, Mahendra Singh Dhoni occupied the position of the wicket-keeper.
He also added the talismanic all-rounders Imran Khan and Kapil Dev to his team while handling the leadership duties to the former Pakistan skipper. Coming to bowling, it was no surprise to see Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis joining hands to make a sturdy pace unit backed by the spin prowess of Saqlain Mushtaq.
