Just a day after the announcement of ICC World Cup XI by the management themselves, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has named his best XI of this tournament. The master has been marking his presence in the World Cup post-match presentations for the past two editions and the fans are giving him the same welcome he received years ago.
In his squad, the master chose to go with Rohit and Johnny Bairstow as the openers. Both of them crossed the 500-run mark in this tournament. While Rohit added five centuries to his name, Bairstos consecutive centuries against India and New Zealand helped the hosts to book the semifinals spot.
His middle order included Kane Williamson, Virat Kohli and Shakib – Al-Hasan. One thing what’s peculiar about Sachin’s top order is that the minimum average is 55.3. Masters middle lower middle order included three all-rounders in the form of Ravindra Jadeja, Ben Stokes and Hardik Pandya. Stokes has been the saviour for the English side in most of the games when the top order crumbled and he proved his class even in the final.
The master decided to go with an aggressive pace attack with the likes of Starc, Bumrah and Jofra Archer. All three of them have some records to their name in this edition of World cup. While Starc ended the season as the highest wicket-taker, Archer and Bumrah made their impact on the number of maidens bowled.
With Kane as the skipper for the side, the master announced his playing XI through his application, 100MB which is available on all the mobile platforms.
Tendulkar’s World Cup 2019 XI:
Rohit Sharma, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Virat Kohli, Shakib Al Hasan, Hardik Pandya, Ben Stokes, Ravindra Jadeja, Mitchell Starc, Jofra Archer, Jasprit Bumrah
