Eoin Morgan picks Anil Kumble and MS Dhoni in All-time XI, no place for Sachin Tendulkar

New Delhi: Have you come across someone who follows Indian cricket but is not a fan of Sachin Tendulkar? If no, then the English batsman Eoin Morgon's All-time XI might surprise you.

The only criteria for selecting his best XI was that he had to pick the ones he has played with, against or was influenced by. Here is the list -

  • Alastair Cook (c)
  • Jacques Kallis
  • Ricky Ponting
  • Brian Lara
  • AB de Villiers
  • Kumar Sangakkara
  • MS Dhoni (wk)
  • Anil Kumble
  • James Anderson
  • Dale Steyn
  • Mitchell Johnson

Apart from Tendulkar's exclusion, Anil Kumble's selection in the list also raised eyebrows considering the newly appointed Indian National Cricket Team Coach had to beat the likes of Shane Warne and Muttiah Murlitharan.

Seems like our 'Jumbo' is famous among his peers yet again!
