SIX Indians in Gurdian’s World test 11

Six Indians cricketers — including Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni — figure in The Guardian newspaper’s ‘World Test XI of the Year’ which interestingly does not include a single Australian.

Former England all-rounder Vic Marks prepared the list which came out in Sunday’s edition of the daily where Marks is a writer.

Apart from Tendulkar and Dhoni, the other Indians in Marks’ team were opener Virender Sehwag, pace partners Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma with Harbhajan Singh as the only spinner.

“This is brilliant; we do not really know which is the best team in the world. For a decade, it has been Australia and there has been nothing to argue about.

“Now there are three contenders as India and South Africa challenge Australia’s supremacy,” said Marks.

“Pick the best XI from these four sides (apologies to Sri Lanka, Pakistan, West Indies and New Zealand for being so exclusive) and it is possible, without too much mischief, not to select a single Australian. This may be an indication of the way things are going,” he added.

Marks picked South African captain Graeme Smith as the skipper of his World XI and the other opener alongside Sehwag.

“He (Smith) is the best ugly batsman in the world,” quipped the former Somerset player.

“Seeking romance and adventure, the choice has to be Virender Sehwag. But, even if pragmatism rules the day, the alternative is another Indian, Gautam Gambhir, who — while not especially pleasing on the eye — is fiercely combative and oozing runs in 2008,” he said.
