The team was selected while the Australian spin legend Shane Warne was doing commentary in the current India Australia Test series. Shane Warne was quoted saying: “A very good one-day bowler, handy bat…You guys told me to put myself in,” and he laughed.

Shane Warne’s All-Time Australia XI: Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Greg Chappell, Allan Border, Michael Clarke, Andrew Symonds, Mitchell Johnson, Dennis Lillee, Shane Warne, and Glenn McGrath.
