The Prince of Kolkata picked Alastair Cook and Matthew Hayden as his openers, while Rahul  Dravid at No. 3 and Sachin at No. 4. Both Rahul and Sachin used to play at this positions respectively during their careers.

Ganguly also picked Ricky Ponting as the  captain while Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka is the wicketkeeper.

In a curious decision; Ganguly kept Ricky Ponting, who used to bat at No. 3, at the No. 7 position.

In the spin department, Warne and Muralitharan  were picked up.  There is no place for Brian Lara, arguably the best ever left-handed in Test cricketer. In the pace bowling, Glenn McGrath, Dale Steyn got a place while Jacques Kallis is the only all-rounder in his team.
