    come to think of it,

    Team of the tournament is actually Pakistan.

    It beat both finalist.
    How unfair is that, it itself couldn't even make it to play offs?

    He did but Kohli himself did not have a terrible tournament. He scored pretty 50s thats about it. Which is a lot more than what other players in there team did form wise. Him and Rohit played a vital role in India batting line up.

    Another reason I feel he fits in this team ahead of Babar is cause Babar and Williamson play a similar way. So having them both in the team would make the batting more slower. Where as Kohli knows how to up the tempo if he needs to. He is a better equipped batsmen for any situation.

    You have to keep in mind that some of these players who performed well was due to the situations they were put in. Babar is being put in a team that has some decent batsmen. We know for a fact that his power game is weak. I doubt he will perform as well as Kohli in this situation.

    It's easy to start comparing Babar with Kohli but first look at the stats of his contemporaries. Carey is slightly older guy as is Rahul. Apart from Pooran all young batsman failed miserably and then you have Babar. When Babar is averaging 50 in Tests. When he has reached 30 centuries in Odis then compare with Kohli.

    Was not trying to compare. Just answering some people who did not understand why I took off Babar for Kohli. Babar is fine batsmen who is developing very quickly. Lets hope he does better for us in the future. Needs to develop his power game. Needs to make the opposition pay after he gets his 50s. When he does that there is no doubt in my mind he will be amongst the best in the World.

    still not making any sense

    we are picking the best performers in this world cup, not overall best performers

    kohli was no where near the best performers hence you putting him is funny n strange

    I already explained why I am putting him there. If this was about best Performers than why make a team? Why not just read the list of players who did best in different departments of the game? In any team you need a balance. Its not about who scored the most hundreds. Its about the players ability to perform. Hence why if it was up to me I’d pick Kohli over Babar anyday.

    Not really team of the tournament. Just the Greatest World Cup 11 of all time.



    Now I respect Ian Bishop as a commentator but even I can tell this dude is making this team with dishonesty. Why would you pick 5 Indian players in The Greatest World Cup 11 of all time? This explains there picks for the ICC 11. These guys are making there intentions very obvious these days.

    Shakib Al Hasan
    Ben Stokes
    Alex Carey (Wicketkeeper)
    Mitchell Starc
    Jofra Archer
    Lockie Ferguson
    Jasprit Bumrah

    Bumrah bowled 84 overs out of a possible 90 and got 18 wickets. He also conceded less than 4 and a half runs per over and nobody else amongst the top 5 wicket takers conceded less than he did whilst keeping his strike rate at 28. Those are absolutely incredible numbers for a fast bowler on the worlds biggest stage. Just because he doesn't tear teams apart or have express pace doesn't mean you should deny his inclusion in the World cups tournament XI!
