Pick your potential world X1 from the 2019 WC teams

Recommended Posts

Rule- 1 player from each of the 10 teams+ 1 extra player from any of the 10 teams.


This is based on who you think will stand out from their respective teams


Here is mine. Looks relatively weak in the bowling dept but obviously the challenge is to accommodate one potential standout player in this WC from each team in a X1. 


A.Markram (SA)

T.Iqbal (Bang)

V.Kohli (India)

S.Hetmeyer (WI)

J.Butler (Eng)

G.Maxwell (Aus)

T.Perera (SL)

R.Khan (Afg)

K.Yadav (Ind)

T.Boult (Nzl)

J.Khan  (Pak)

Warner (AUS)

Bairstow (ENG) 

Babar Azam (PAK)

Morgan (ENG) <captain>

Mushfiqur (BD) <wk>

Russell (WI)

Thisara Perera (SL)

Rabada (RSA)

Rashid Khan (AFG)

Boult (NZ)

Kuldeep or Bumrah (IND).....depending on pitch but the quick has the edge on most ENG surfaces. 


Tough to leave out Kohli/Butler/Cummins/Starc... but rule is tough especially with teams like BD, PAK, SL in the mix.....and I wanna annoy Kohli fanboys:phehe:. AFG has a standout player in Rashid, not the case with the other 3 Asian teams. 


Best opening pair possible to make use of PP/hard ball and also score daddy 100s, 3 lefties in top 7, both explosive batters and accumulators available. Morgan-Mushfiqur excellent against spin in middle overs. Late order savage hitting plus enough batting depth right till number 9, I believe Rashid isn't a mug with the bat. 40 solid overs plus Russell/Perera to complete the 5th bowler's quota. Mushfiqur will be my keeper cos I don't want to overburden an opener with keeping duties.
