    ESPNcricinfo World XI

    ESPNcricinfo to pick world XI | All-time XIs | Cricinfo Magazine | Cricinfo.com

    Pick your World XI. I think they screwed up how the players were divided. For example, you can only pick Sobers, Imran and Hadlee as all-rounders but not as specialist batsmen or bowlers. Whilst I understand that only those that got into their all-time XI were in contention, it makes it a bit of a joke as you can pick Inzamum, Jayawardene or Pietersen but not Ponting.

    Anyway, my XI was:

    Hobbs
    Hutton
    Bradman
    Viv Richards
    Chappell
    Sobers
    Miller
    Gilchrist
    Warne
    Lillee
    McGrath

    Nah, no chance. Sehwag only scores on flat wickets.

    There is only one way to settle this: Rock, paper, scissors.
