WORLD CUP '11 - XI AND XV

Everyone has been forming their World Cup XI from the recently-concluded World Cup 2011, where India were crowned the World Champions (wow... feels so nice to write this!).

I decided to form my own XI too, and in fact, unlike the ICC and Cricinfo, I decided to go further and list my team of XV for the World Cup. But before that, lets take a look at both ICC's and Cricinfo's team for the World Cup.

ICC TEAM: T Dilshan (SL), S Tendulkar (Ind), K Sangakkara (SL), M Jayawardene (SL), AB de Villiers (SA), Y Singh (Ind), S Watson (Aus), S Afridi (Pak), D Steyn (SA), Z Khan (Ind), M Muralitharan (SL). 12th man: T Southee (NZ).

Cricinfo TEAM: T Dilshan (SL), S Tendulkar (Ind), K Sangakkara (SL), J Trott (Eng), AB de Villiers (SA), Y Singh (Ind), S Afridi (Pak), G Swann (Eng), D Steyn (SA), Z Khan (Ind), L Malinga (SL).

Now, here's a look at my team:

T Dilshan (SL), S Tendulkar (Ind), J Trott (Eng), K Sangakkara (SL), AB de Villiers (SA), Y Singh (Ind), R ten Doeschate (Ned), S Afridi (Pak), D Steyn (SA), Z Khan (Ind), M Muralitharan (SL).

Remaining players in the XV: R Peterson (SA), T Southee (NZ), R Taylor (NZ), R Price (Zim).

Shridhar,

Good team. But Murali in current shape will need protection in the field :-)

Govind, thank you! I'll get Ross Taylor to field for Murali! :-)
