Kumar Sangakkara reveals his all-time XI

Sri Lankan legendary wicket-keeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara has named his all-time greatest eleven team and has ignored Sachin Tendulkar. In fact, Rahul Dravid is the lone Indian in the team, which is dominated by Australian cricketers.

In a video posted on Lord’s Ground Twitter page, Sangakkara chose Matthew Hayden and Rahul Dravid as openers. At number 3 and 4, he opted for Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting respectively.


For the number 5, Sanga chose his fellow countryman Aravinda de Silva. Meanwhile, for the number 6 spot, he opted for Jacques Kallis.

Wicketkeeper batsman Adam Gilchrist is Sanga’s choice at the number 7.
