Iqbal picked former Indian batsmen Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and current India captain Virat Kohli as opening partners. These three batsmen have scored over 36,000 runs in ODIs and served as integral players of Team India’s batting in their seasons.
The other players the southpaw picked are former Australian cricketers Ricky Pointing and Glenn McGrath, Pakistani cricketers Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar, Sri Lankan bowler Muttiah Muralitharan, South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis, and Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
Iqbal is about to play his fourth World Cup on May 30. He has dominated Bangladesh’s cricket sport for a decade and is the team’s highest scorer in Test, ODI, and T20I with 12,000 plus runs.
Bangladesh will begin their ICC World Cup campaign on June 2 against South Africa at The Oval.
