The latest debutant to make a cut in the squad for the pink Test match against Windies, Mason Crane in the coming week picks up his all-time best XI. He launched himself in a terrific fashion in county season and impressed everyone with his ability in the T20I series against South Africa. He caught the eye balls of one and all when he scalped AB de Villiers as his first wicket.
Mason Crane asked the modern legendary cricketer, Alastair Cook to open the innings along side Indian cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar. He placed his bet on the West Indian, Brian Lara to bat at number 3 position while the stylish southpaw Kumar Sangakkara will be playing at number 4 position handling the charge of the middle-order department.
The greatest all-rounder in the world cricket, Jacques Kallis is the follow up of Sangakkara who is equally great in giving the breakthroughs for the skipper when it matters the most and an absolute gem in slip catching. Mr. 360º AB de Villiers is the next man in the line up of Mason Crane to complete the middle-order batting.
He asked Adam Gilchrist to done the gloves who is equally exception with the batting gloves as well. Coming to the spin department, being a leg-spinner, he chose the all-time greatest Shane Warne in the setup who will also shoulder with the additional duty of captaincy followed by another legendary leg-spinner from India, Anil Kumble.
Without any surprise, Mason Crane also went with the James Anderson in his bowling department and asked Glenn McGrath to complete the squad. All in all, the squad of Mason Crane seems very comfortable as they can beat any team on their day on any soil.
Here is the squad:
Shane Warne (c), Alastair Cook, Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Kumar Sangakkara, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, Adam Gilchrist (wk), Anil Kumble, James Anderson, Glenn McGrath.
