Steve Waugh to captain, Gilchrist over Sangakkara and Tendulkar at No.4 in Jonathan Trott’s All-Time XI

South Africa-born former England cricketer Jonathan Trott has revealed his All-Time XI. Trott, a successful English cricketer, retired from international cricket in 2015. Though his career was short, it was successful and he played a role in England’s rise to No.1 Test spot.

Coming to Trott’s team, he picked England’s current Test captain Alastair Cook as the opener alongside former Australian dasher Michael Slater. The middle order looks pretty strong with Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar, all-rounder Jacques Kallis, followed by Steve Waugh, who is also his captain of the side. ALSO READ: No Sri Lankan player in James Taylor’s World XI; Alastair Cook to lead the side

He has Australian legend Adam Gilchrist coming at No.7, and of course, he is the wicketkeeper too. Moving to his bowling department, the team includes two of the greatest spinners — Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan. On the other hand, his pace battery is pretty lethal as it has Waqar Younis along with ‘White Lightening’ Allan Donald.

Surely, it’s a well-balanced side which is sensibly picked by Trott.

Jonathan Trott’s All-Time XI: Alastair Cook, Michael Slater, Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar, Jacques Kallis, Steve Waugh (c), Adam Gilchrist (wk), Shane Warne, Muttiah Muralitharan, Waqar Younis, Allan Donald.
