Want to be a professional cricketer?
Well, choosing the best XI is always a tough job, as it needs a lot of calculations and the team balance to go with. The latest to take that task is the former Indian batsman, who turned into an analyst Aakash Chopra. He picked an interesting lineup with Kane Williamson leading the side.
The squad consists of Two Indian cricketers, two Australian and New Zealanders and three England cricketers as well. A couple of players left in the squad are from Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Aakash Chopra picked Rohit Sharma of India and England’s Jason Roy to open the innings for his side. Both of them enjoyed quite a bit of success for their respective teams and also garnered a huge name for their performances for their respective country during the tournament.
Shakib Al Hasan to bat at number 4:
Following them, Aakash Chopra asked the Kiwis’ number 3 batsman Kane Williamson to bat at number 3 position. Following Kane Williamson, it is the all-time best all-rounder from Bangladesh Shakib Al Hasan, who will be batting in the middle-order for his side.
Then comes an obvious choice in the form of Ben Stokes, who will be batting at number 5 for the team. He had a sensational tournament for England. He is accompanied by the ever-stylish Alex Carey and James Neesham of New Zealand who played with grit and determination.
Coming to the fast bowling department, he asked Mitchell Starc of Australia to join Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer in the team. Then came the surprise, as he picked Mohammad Amir to finish his bowling lineup.
For 12th man, Ravindra Jadeja got the vote, as he is current best fielder in the world cricket. All in all, the squad looks complete that can beat any kind of team on its day.
Aakash Chopra’s World Cup XI:
Rohit Sharma, Jason Roy, Kane Williamson, Shakib Al Hasan, Ben Stokes, Alex Carey, James Neesham, Jofra Archer, Mitchell Starc, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Amir, Ravindra Jadeja (12th man)
