The selection of a world XI has been in circulation around the web for past two weeks due to cricinfo.com selecting their own. So I have decided to put through my own world test 11 team.
I have taken a combination of 2 openers, 3 middle order batsman, 1 all-rounder, 1 wicketkeeper and 4 bowlers. Having a quality all rounder at 6 or 7 more often than not balances the team's batting and bowling. It will provide the team with a balanced outlook irrespective of subcontinental, seaming or bouncy pitches. The list has been arranged in batting order.
