England speedster Stuart Broad, like many other cricketers, has revealed his all-time playing XI.
Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is the only Indian player in Broad’s team, while none of the Pakistani players were picked by the right-arm pacer.
Broad revealed his squad through Lord`s Cricket YouTube channel, with the criteria being that he had to have played with or against them, or have been strongly influenced by the players mentioned.
Broad has picked four Australian and three English players in his best XI.
While Alastair Cook has been named as the captain, Australia’s spin king Shane Warne is the vice-captain of the team. Broad also picked Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara and Jacques Kallis – the three master of the game in his team.
For the position of wicket-keeper, Broad has opted for his fellow countrymen Matt Prior, despite having the choices of Kumar Sangakkara, Adam Gilchrist and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Alastair Cook (England – captain), Matthew Hayden (Australia), Ricky Ponting (Australia), Sachin Tendulkar (India), Brian Lara (West Indies), Jacques Kallis (South Africa), Matthew Prior (England – wicketkeeper), Sir Richard Hadlee (New Zealand), Shane Warne (Australia – vice-captain), Glenn McGrath (Australia), James Anderson (England).
