Former India batsman Wasim Jaffer picked his all-time One-day International team and picked four Indian players including Mahendra Singh Dhoni as its skipper.

Jaffer picked Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma as the opening pair. The number three spot was bagged by West Indian Vivian Richards and current Indian skipper Virat Kohli was given number four spot.

 

South African versatile batsman AB De Villiers and England all-rounder Ben Stokes was given chance to boost the middle-order batting.

Dhoni was named as skipper and wicket-keeper batsman while bowling attack included former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram, former Windies pacer Joel Garner, and former Australian pacer Glen McGrath.

There is a tie between two great bowlers Saqlain Mushtaq and Shane Warne for the one spinner's spot.

Surprisingly, Australia's most successful captain Ricky Ponting has been picked as 12th man by Jaffer in his ODI side. Ponting captained Australia to two consecutive World Cup titles in 2003 and 2007.
