Aakash Chopra picks ODI XI of the decade & T20I XI of the decade

Aakash Chopra is one of the well respected and well received Indian commentators going around at the moment. The former Indian opener selected his T20I and ODI XI of the decade and there are some interesting names in it.

No Chris Gayle in Aakash Chopra's T20I XI

Chris Gayle is one of the modern day greats in the shortest format of the game. He has 2 WT20 under his kitty in the last decade. His records in this format of the game are unmatched to say the least. The only reason one could think of for leaving out the universe BOSS could be Chris Gayle's relatively less dominance in the international circuit when compared to the franchise cricket around the world.

He has 3 proper death bowlers in his team in the form of Mitchell Starc, Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah which cannot be argued by any means. Rashid Khan will lead the spin attack.

Aakash Chopra retains same pace attack for ODI XI

The Delhi opener retained the same pace bowling attack which he picked for T20I XI for ODI XI as well but the spin attack will be lead by Imran Tahir from South Africa who has been one of the most underrated spinners in the last decade or so.

Who is the Best Test Batsman?

He also has plenty of variety in the spin bowling department where he chose to go with Mohammad Hafeez and Shakib Al Hasan in his playing 11 which will make his team a dynamic one.

Aakash Chopra's ODI XI of the decade:
Rohit Sharma
Hashim Amla
Virat Kohli
AB de Villiers
MS Dhoni (C & WK)
Shakib Al Hasan
Mohammad Hafeez
Lasith Malinga
Mitchell Starc
Jasprit Bumrah
