It is common for cricket legends to choose a favorite team of their own. Sometimes this work is also done by reputable cricket magazines. This time Wisden, known as the Bible of Cricket, has selected its all-time World XI of all formats according to the ICC rankings. No one will be surprised if they see the names of two Indian players who have been named in this squad, because it is their game. India captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, vice-captain of limited overs, have been successful in the list.

South Africa’s Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock have been selected as the opening pair. De Kock was also included in the team for the role of wicketkeeper. If you look at the middle order of this team, you can find more than one batsman here. Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli are third and fourth in the team, while Pakistan’s Babar Azam and Australia’s Steve Smith have been selected for the fifth and sixth place. If there are many great batsmen in the same team, it is enough to beat the pet team.
