Combined squad

One can argue that you should never compare two teams from two different eras. Different rules, different opposition, different  standards, etc, etc. So, it just not fair to compare the 1983 team with the current bunch. It is also not fair to pick a combined World XI from all the teams that have played – sometimes the sum is greater than the parts, as some people complement others within the team. It is fun activity, nevertheless…and I’ve seen various combined eleven or fifteen that people have propped up in the last couple of days.

I thought I’d take a slightly different approach and pick an Indian 15 from the two World cup winning teams.

But first, here is the team that won the World cup in 1983:

And the team that just the world cup is:

…And my combined XV is follows:

  • Sachin Tendulkar
  • Virender Sehwag
  • Gautam Gambhir
  • Mohinder Amarnath
  • Yuvraj Singh
  • Sandeep Patil/Suresh Raina
  • Mahendra Singh Dhoni
  • Ravi Shastri
  • Kapil Dev
  • Zaheer Khan
  • Munaf Patel/Harbhajan Singh/Roger Binny

What is yours? Smile
