For opening the innings, Chandimal picked the iconic duo of Sachin Tendulkar and Alastair Cook. The 34-year old cricketer formed his middle-order by including the likes of Kumar Sangakkara, Virat Kohli and Brian Lara. At 6th and 7th position, he included Mahela Jayawardene, whom he appointed the captain of the side, and all-rounder Jacques Kallis.
