James Franklin picks his all-time XI

James Franklin, the New Zealand star, who is equally good with the bat as well as bowl, has unveiled his all-time XI, which includes three Indian cricketers. The Kiwi southpaw who is still the integral part in many of the T20 leagues across the globe choose his Mumbai Indians’ colleagues Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma and Harbhajan Singh in his all-time XI.

Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum has been named as the leader of the side which comprises of players from New Zealand, India, Australia, England and West Indies.
