Cricket Australia (CA) have named former India skipper Sourav Ganguly as the skipper of the Greatest XI in the history of the ICC Champions Trophy. The team was revealed by the CA on their website on Tuesday (May 9). The team has been selected ahead of the seventh edition of the tournament which is scheduled to start on June 1 in England.

Under Ganguly, India were joint Champions Trophy winners with Sri Lanka in 2002. The former swashbuckling batsman had also led the team to the final of the tournament in 2000 where they were beaten by New Zealand.  Another Indian who has made it to the list is Rahul Dravid.

Here is the CA’s Greatest Champions Trophy XI:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. 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.
