Tim Bresnan names his all-time playing XI; fans call it as 'weirdest playing XI' of all time
England all-rounder Tim Bresnan has picked his all-time playing XI. Shockingly, England players dominate the line-up which left the cricket fraternity confused. While we expected him to pick certain players from England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Brenan stunned all of us with surprising picks.
Shockingly, there is no place for the God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar or current best batsman Virat Kohli. Only one fab 4 batsman featured in his playing XI and he is England's Test captain Joe Root. Going by the playing XI, Bresnan picked 9 players from England and 2 Australians.
This has to be the weirdest pick of all time. The video clip was posted by the official page of the Lord’s Cricket Ground back in 2019. The admin of the page usually posts something like this on the player's birthday. Ever since they posted the clip, the fans chipped in with comments to troll the all-rounder.
Gary Ballance is the captain in Tim Bresnan's playing XI
As an Englishman, it is no surprise in seeing him pick Alastair Cook and Adam Lyth as the opening pair. England's Test skipper Joe Root comes in at No.3 whereas former Australian all-rounder Darren Lehmann takes his No.4 position.
Tim Bresnan made Gary Ballance the captain and wicketkeeper of his cricketing XI. The 36-year-old all-rounder Bresnan who plays for Warwickshire picked himself in the playing XI. Bresnan is known for his big-hitting abilities and besides that, he has taken 205 international wickets for England.
He then went on to pick England's wrist-spinner Adil Rashid in the XI. The list is dominated by 4 other fast bowlers from England including the likes of Stuart Broad, Mitchell Johnson, Steve Harmison and James Anderson. Every cricket fan who comes across this playing XI would certainly cringe considering that there is no depth in the playing XI.
Tim Bresnan all-time XI:
Alastair Cook, Adam Lyth, Joe Root, Darren Lehmann, Gary Ballance (C) (WK), Tim Bresnan, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, Mitchell Johnson, Steve Harmison and James Anderson.
