Ramiz Added Anil Kumbly as only Bowler from India into All-time Team Indo-Pak ODI XI, Imran Khan as Skipper
Former cricketer Ramiz Raja has selected Imran Khan as the captain for his all-time playing XI consisting of Pakistani and Indian players.
Raja was speaking to former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar on Facebook live. He said his squad would comprise Pakistani bowlers and Indian batsmen. And that according to him was a fantastic India-Pakistan XI.
“I briefly discussed this with my son. It’s a massive situation to be in, how to assemble a star cast of some giants of the game. But he said no, it’s very simple. You have Pakistan bowlers and Indian batsmen in the line-up and you get a fantastic India-Pakistan XI,” Raja said.
The TV pundit, announcing his bowling side, chooses former speedster Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Saqlain Mushtaq. Anil Kumble was the only bowler from the Indian side to make to the list.
Raja’s battling line-up comprised Virender Sehwag, Sunil Gavaskar, as openers. While he selected Virat Kohli for the batting on the number 3.
Raja picked cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar to bat at number four, Rahul Dravid at number five and MS Dhoni, the wicket-keeper, at six.
