New Delhi: Lord's cricket ground's official YouTube channel recently published a new video featuring former Pakistani cricketer Rameez Raja's all-time XI.
# Two former Indian batsmen with contrasting styles of play open the innings for Rameez – the explosive Virender Sehwag and the original Little Master Sunil Gavaskar.
# West Indies cricket legend Sir Viv Richards was picked for the crucial No. 3 position followed by Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar and another West Indian great Brian Lara at no. 4 and no. 5 positions, respectively.
# Widely considered as cricket's greatest ever all-rounder, Sir Garfield Sobers comes next in the list followed by former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist, who revolutionized the way wicket-keeping is perceived in cricket.
# Imran Khan – the only Pakistani cricketer in the list – is named the captain of this extraordinary line-up.
# The man who filled fear in the minds of batsmen, West Indian pacer Malcom Marshall, is the first mainstream bowler in the squad followed by Australian duo – Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne – who hardly need any introduction at all.
