It’s a pride moment for Pakistan’s cricket that former Pakistan captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan and ‘Swing of King’ Wasim Akram has been named in ESPNcricinfo’s all-time World Cup XI.
According to the cricket website, ten of the playing XI featured in half or more of the sides. Of these, Wasim Akram was the only unanimous choice. India, meanwhile, only has a single representative on the list in the form of Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
The only two players who have been picked despite never being the world champions are Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara and South Africa’s Lance Klusenar.
