Here’s the all time left handers ODI XI


Sanath Jayasuriya
Mathew Hayden

That’s some heavy duty destruction right at the top of the order. Sanath Jayasuriya has always been explosive and Hayden has always been classy. These two make an opening pair any bowling attack would be afraid of. With these two at the top of the order the margin for error would be negligible for bowlers.

Middle Order


One Down: Sourav Ganguly (c)
Two Down: Kumara Sangakkara (Wk)
Three Down: Yuvraj Singh
Fourth Down: Adam Gilchrist
Fifth Down: Stephen Fleming

Perfect middle order we’d say. There’s so much skill and explosion in this middle order. So, getting rid of the openers will not make things any better for the bowlers as they’d be then thrashed by this supercool and super handsome middle order. Each player in this middle order is a match winner.

All Rounders

Ben Stokes


Ben Stokes is a great all rounder. He’s both, an accomplished batsman and a fine bowler. Every team would want an all rounder like him because he adds immensely to the battling line up as well as the bowling arsenal.


Wasim Akram
Trent Boult
Kuldeep Yadav


Wasim Akram is the greatest ever left handed bowler and there’s not even the slightest doubt about that. Kuldeep Yadav given his mysterious wrist spin adds yet another match winner to the team.
