Both scored close to 9000 runs respectively in the longest format and justify their positions in the team. Tendulkar played a world record 200 Tests for India and collected 15,921 runs at an average of 53.78 while in 463 ODIs he scored 18,426 runs at an average of 44.83. In 299 ODIs he accumulated 10,405 runs including 19 centuries and 63 fifties. The leading wicket-taker for Australia named the line-up on Instagram live and opted to go for players with whom he had played.

The 54-year-old man discusses how he stopped playing semi-professional soccer to pursue a career in cricket and how Bob Simpson's influence played a major role in his development as a player.

"Steve was more of a match-saver than a match-winner", Warner said about Waugh whom he included in his all-time Australian Test XI to be led by Allan Border.


Instead of Justin Langer, Warne named hard-hitting Michael Slater for the opening slot along with the obvious choice of Matthew Hayden. The legendary leg-spinner also picked his greatest England XI and greatest Australian XI sides.

Warne decided not to pick Steve Waugh, who was captain of Australia for a significant portion of his career, as he felt Border was a better bet due to being left-handed.

Speaking about Steve Waugh, Warne mentioned, "Steve was extra of a match saver than a match-winner".


Adam Gilchrist was chosen to don the wicketkeeping gloves.

Talking about Bruce Reid, Warne said: "If you don't know about Bruce, I would like to tell you, he has the same record as Ryan Harris".The former Australian spinner also revealed that he will be naming his greatest Ashes XI on Tuesday during an Instagram Live session. "Michael Vaughan was the best England captain I played against", Warne said.
