Rahul Dravid lone Indian in  Kumar Sangakkara’s XI

Sangakkara believes Dravid, who is currently India A coach, will be the best to complement former Australian batsman Mathew Hayden in the opening slot in the squad led by former Lankan batsman Aravinda De Silva.

In the batting line up, the regal left-handed batsman picked his ‘all time favourite batsman’ Brian Lara along with former Aussie captain Ricky Ponting. Top all-rounder Jacques Kallis will complete the line up and erstwhile Australian wicket keeper Adam Gilchrist will be doning the gloves behind the wicket.

The 46-year-old Sangakkara believes Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan are the two specialist spinners who are the best he has ever seen as they can bowl well in any condition. 

The fast bowling department will have legendary Lankan pacer Chaminda Vaas along with former 
Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram as Sangakkara viewed him as an ‘unbelievable challenge’ to face.

The list in total has four Australian and three Lankan while a lone spot for Indian, Pakistan, South African and West Indian players.
