1. Chris Gayle (WI)
2. Alistair Cook (Eng)

4. Virat Kohli (Ind)
5. AB de Villiars (SA)
6. Shakib al Hasan (Ban)
7. Brendan Taylor wk- (Zim)
8. Thisara Perara (SL)
9. Mitchell Starc (Aus)
10. Mohammed Amir (Pak)

Why has everyone picked Shakib from BD? lol...we do have other crickters, his batting is effective but his technqiue is painful to watch.

1) Tamim (BD) - not my fave but I like him and he's averaging 56+ in ODIs the past 2-3 years
2) Rohit (IND) - had to pick someone
3) Williamson (NZ) - probably my fave non-BD player
4) Root (ENG) - most liked of any Pommie ODI player
5) S Hope (WI)
6) De Kock (SA, WK)
7) Nabi (AFG)
8) Shadab (PAK)
9) Cummins (AUS)
10) Chatara (ZIM)
11) Sandakan (SL)

12) Stirling (IRE)
Probably because he's easily the best all-rounder in international cricket currently.

That's a pretty strong lineup. Hasan Ali is a much better bowler than Amir though, probably the best fast bowler in limited-overs stuff at the moment.

If Misbah can make it to foreignfield's XI, I hope Sangakkara and Afridi qualify too. They have been playing till very recently.
Well Misbah played internationally less than a year ago. If considered eligible I would of course also pick Sangakkara, although Matthews looks like a decent successor.

Wouldn’t say I like Kohli but I love watching him bat

Same with Stokes not really a fan but I like his bowling & batting styles

Fair enough , Stokes is awesome when on song. Don’t think you can beat a genuine all rounder can you . Kallis in my opinion was the greatest cricketer to play the game .
