    The 90s world XI including Sanga, not including Steve Waugh and the current XI having no Steyn and Broad are far more egregious errors than having kohli in there.

    Atherton and Ramiz Raja apparently. The latter is a bit of an idiot and given we know Warne loves an agenda, he probably had a lot of influence in picking the side.

    The side was a 90's/2000's side. The slip of paper it's written on doesn't say the 00's.

    FWIW my world XI (tests) would be:

    Warner
    Cook
    Williamson
    Root
    Smith
    Matthews
    Ashwin
    Nevill +
    Starc
    Anderson
    Steyn

    And my 90s team would be:

    Gooch
    Taylor
    Lara
    Tendulkar
    S.Waugh
    Inzamam
    Healy +
    Akram
    Warne
    Ambrose
    Waqar

    How would Starc get into a world test XI? Don't get me wrong, I rate him but he's hardly been a consistent test performer as yet.

    Could replace him with Broad, but I'd go with Starc right now if I was actually selecting a team to win in almost any conditions. Guy is on fire atm

    I get the hype, he is the best at what he does. All the competition is right arm fast-medium and he's left arm fast. Also people care about world cups.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Neither Ponting nor Kallis were great test batsmen in the 90s so if they can get selected in a 90s XI, why not Kohli? The point being neither of these people are particularly well informed about current cricket, they watch barely a handful of games involving the big teams and don't really follow anything outside of that. Herath and Steyn missing out and Starc getting picked on the day he took 11 wickets is a testament to that.

    [

    Since 2014, KW averages 73, YK averages 57. Both Azhar Ali and Hafeez average higher than Cook in the same period and in far less number of games, Hafeez as as many hundreds and Azhar has more.

    Picking AB as a keeper is kinda cheating but I sort of understand that selection. But if anything, Sanga should have been selected as WK batsman ahead of AB.

    But bottom line is that this team should not be taken that seriously. And here's the thing about Kohli though. I believe he is a great batsmen and his test average doesn't bother me that much. It's only a matter of time before he gets it up there. And he is also not a lesser batsman than KW, Root and Smith. But if we are picking a current Test XI, there is no way he gets number 4 ahead of YK or KW today.

    Point being Williamson is sooooooo much more deserving of a spot than Kohli it's not even funny...

    Funny how Voges has the highest average of everyone since the start of 2014 and no one is picking him in a world XI

    Since the start of 2015, Starc actually has the 3rd best average out of bowlers who have taken more than 50 wickets.
