AB, Kohli pick Dhoni as captain of combined South Africa-India XI

Royal Challengers Bangalore teammates AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli recently interacted in a candid Instagram live session that was widely enjoyed by fans. The two cricketing superstars touched upon a range of topics during their engrossing discussion including picking a dream lineup comprising of South African and Indian players.

The RCB pair selected a perfect mix of legendary figures and current stars in their India-South Africa combined ODI XI. The two unanimously decided that the skipper of their team would be none other than MS Dhoni. “I have always had a world of respect for him, he is always calm and knows the game well,” de Villiers stated.

Meanwhile, the team composition was heavily dominated by Indians with seven players from the nation. De Villiers and Kohli surprisingly went for Yuzvendra Chahal as the premier spinner for their hypothetical team.

Combined ODI XI: Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Jacques Kallis, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Yuvraj Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dale Steyn, Jasprit Bumrah, Kagiso Rabada
