Afridi's World Cup XI excludes Imran Khan, Sachin Tendulkar

Afridi's World Cup XI excludes Imran Khan, Sachin Tendulkar

Former entertaining all-rounder Shahid Afridi recently hosted an Instagram session with a renowned local journalist as a way of interacting with his fans amidst the troubling times. During the live chat, Afridi picked his all-time World Cup XI, which featured some interesting choices.

The biggest snubs from Afridi’s dream team were World Cup-winning skipper Imran Khan and all-time leading run-getter Sachin Tendulkar. Both these esteemed cricketers hold a lot of records in the marquee events and their exclusion was nothing short of surprises for fans.

Afridi went for five Pakistanis in his distinguished list, giving his playing XI a more bowling-heavy outlook. He also picked current India skipper Virat Kohli in his team and chose to keep four Aussies in the combination.

Shahid Afridi’s all-time World Cup XI: Saeed Anwar, Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting, Virat Kohli, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Jacques Kallis, Wasim Akram, Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Shoaib Akhtar, Saqlain Mushtaq
