Dale Steyn picks no Indian in his all-time XI
Veteran pacer Dale Steyn has named his all-time favourite XI and surprisingly, many big names were missing in his list. When big names like Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli were supposed to be in everyone’s all-time XI, Steyn has not even picked an Indian in his XI.
As if that was not bad enough, Steyn didn’t pick his fellow South African AB de Villiers, which is quite shocking. Steyn picked Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara and legendary Australian bowler Brett Lee. Steyn’s XI has his former skipper, Graeme Smith at the top of the order.
Legendary all-rounder Jacques Kallis was featured in the side as an all-rounder at No.4 alongside Johnty Rhodes and Quinton de Kock.
His list has players he played with or against, be it International or club level. Dave Hawken, Bret Bargiachi and co earned a place in South African pacer’s All-time XI.
Lower down the order, South African pacer and now-turned coach Allan Donald is featured in the list. Paul Harris earns a spot as a sole spinner in the XI.
Dale Steyn’s Best XI:
Kumar Sangakkara, Graeme Smith, Dave Hawken, Jacques Kallis, Jonty Rhodes, Quinton de Kock, Bret Bargiachi, Peter Lombard, Brett Lee, Paul Harris, Allan Donald.
