Warne captioned this as: This morning @skysports asked Athers, Ramiz & myself to pick two world 11’s ! 90’s/00’s & a Current one. This was the consensus after our selection meeting. Thoughts ? Agree / Disagree ? The two unlucky players to miss out in my opinion are Amla & Williamson. This is also a squad, the final 11 would be picked depending on conditions.
The thing which didn’t went well with fans was that, they picked Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara in 90s World XI, whereas he made his cricketing debut in 2000.
