The recent time has seen Lord’s Cricket Ground bringing all time XI’s chosen by the cricketers themselves via their account on You Tube and Twitter. More than dozens of former cricketers have revealed all-time XI. And former England opener Marcus Trescothick is the latest cricketer to reveal his favorite eleven among those who played with or against him.

In a video posted on Lord’s Cricket Ground’s official Youtube Account, the left-handed batsman, who currently plies his trade for English county Somerset, named a strong team and undoubtedly it seemed to be one of the best sides picked so far.

Former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith and current England Test skipper Alastair Cook are opening the innings for the team. Trescothick said that Cook is England’s best ever batsman while the reason that he gave for Smith’s selection is that the South African was a very tough competitor.  He admitted that Smith was not the prettiest of the batsmen but always managed to score heavily and got the job done.

Calling former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting as one of the greatest players of all time, Trescothick made him the captain of his team.  Following him at number four was Indian batting legend, Sachin Tendulkar. On Tendulkar’s unparalleled accomplishments, Trescothick said, “(He) is the greatest player ever, changed the atmosphere of the game whenever he came into bat – especially in the subcontinent, in India. (He was) a brilliant player to play against.”

Number five spot was given to West Indies “genius” Brian Lara. Recalling the match when Lara scored 400 in an innings of the Test at Antigua in 2004, he said:, “The genius of the team, Brian Lara was an absolutely phenomenal player to play against. Luckily or unluckily, I managed to bowl a few overs at him when he got 400. He sort of took the game apart and could do things no one else could do.”

The bowling line-up also looks heavy with the likes of Shane Warne and Wasim Akram.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
