    These are my world XI's excluding all cricketers who played before 1970.

    1st XI

    Tendulkar
    Gilchrist (W)
    Viv
    Lara
    Kallis
    Miandad
    Imran (C)
    Warne
    Marshall
    Wasim
    Mcgrath

    Chosen Tendulkar because of great ODI record to open who I feel would be most effective and could facilitate entry of more great middle order batsmen.Gilchrist selected as he was a great match-winner and more destructive than Gavaskar or Greenidge.Viv was the most intimidating of all and best against pace.Lara singlehandedly won games more than any great batsmen as well as bore crsiis for the weakest of batting sides like none else.Kallis statistically wa sthe best ever all-rounder and was the best batting all-rounder of last half century.Miandad would be the ultimate batsmen in a crisis who could niggle opponents more than Border Imran came close to perforation as a cricketer as few did being an outstanding captain bad I would choose him to lead this side.Warne re-defined the role of a leg spinner and was the ultmate match-winner of his day.Marshall took the biodynamics of pace bowling to metaphysical pproportions ,unsurpassed by a right arm fast bowler.Wasim took the art of pace bowling to a height of divinty traversing regions unexplored.Mcgrath exhibited greater control and intelligence than any bower I ever saw .

    The most important basis here was the match-winner likes Viv,Gilly or Warne and the supreme talent of Wasim,Lara or Marshall.Alos ofcousethe impact of TEndulkar and Imran,2 of the most complete cricketers in the history of the game.




    2nd XI
    Gavaskar
    Barry
    Steve Smith
    Greg Chappell
    Alan Border(c)
    Devilliers (w)
    Botham
    Hadlee
    Lillee
    Ambrose
    Murli

    Border would lead my 2nd XI who was responsible for knotting a bunch of talented Australain s into world beaters and the best to bat for your life.The batting records of Smith nad Chappell speak for themselves.Devilliers virtually gave anew dimension to batting .Botham in his peak era was the best all-rounder and match-winner of last half century.Hadlee on a green top was arguably the best ever bowler.No paceman was more complete of agressive as Lillee.Ambrose surpassed any fast bowler for sheer accuracy and relentlessness.Murli statistically was the best bowler of all.



    3rd XI
    Sehwag
    Gooch
    Ponting
    Kohli
    Sangakkara(w)
    Steve Waugh (c)
    Kapil Dev
    Steyn
    Qadir
    Waqar
    Donald

    Steve Waugh was an outstanding captain and batsmen in a crisis.Gooch wa sthe best opener against express pace.Sehwag virtually gave art batting a new dimension taking detsruction to region sof the sublime.Kohli has come nearer Sachin Tendulkar than nay one with a greater appetite to win games.Sanga is statistically the best wicketkeeper bandsmen of all.Qadir foxed batsmen nad mastered googly more than nay spinner ever.Waqar and Donald were the quickest bowlers of their era.Steyn was very much like a re-born Malcolm Marshal being almost as complete as the very best bowlers.Ponting at his best matched strides with Lara and Sachin nad was also the best player of pace bowling.
