Shaheen Afridi, Babar Azam, Jasprit Bumrah, and Virat Kohli comprise Australia Legend’s ODI Dream XI

<p>The top five selections in an ODI Dream XI for Australia icon Lisa Sthalekar include Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah. Among the first five choices, the ICC Hall of Famer has nominated two Indians, two Pakistanis, and one Australian.</p>
<p>Bumrah is really her first option since she believes he is a bowler who can succeed in every stage of an ODI innings.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-155104″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-maharashtra-mother-and-1-year-old-son-die-after-jumping-off-building-virat-bumrah.jpg-11zon-750×484.png” alt=”theindiaprint.com maharashtra mother and 1 year old son die after jumping off building virat bumrah.jpg 11zon” width=”1480″ height=”955″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-maharashtra-mother-and-1-year-old-son-die-after-jumping-off-building-virat-bumrah.jpg-11zon-750×484.png 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-maharashtra-mother-and-1-year-old-son-die-after-jumping-off-building-virat-bumrah.jpg-11zon-768×496.png 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-maharashtra-mother-and-1-year-old-son-die-after-jumping-off-building-virat-bumrah.jpg-11zon-150×97.png 150w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-maharashtra-mother-and-1-year-old-son-die-after-jumping-off-building-virat-bumrah.jpg-11zon.png 912w” sizes=”(max-width: 1480px) 100vw, 1480px” title=”Shaheen Afridi, Babar Azam, Jasprit Bumrah, and Virat Kohli comprise Australia Legend's ODI Dream XI 3″></p>
<p>I must go see Jasprit Bumrah at number one. An opening bowler is crucial because you need to get wickets early on and be ready to bowl at the latter end when the players are exerting themselves. He is a versatile bowler who can be utilized in all three of the distinct stages, according to Sthalekar, who spoke to the ICC.</p>
<p>Her second choice is Kohli, who is considered as one of the best hitters of his generation and who she believes one can trust on the biggest platform.</p>
<p>“From a batting standpoint, I’m going to choose Virat Kohli for the No. 2 position. As it is likely to be his last World Cup, you can count on him to perform well on the big stage in front of his home audience. A time for him to say goodbye and make India proud as well,” added Sthalekar.</p>
<p>Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, and Steve Smith, the great player of Australia, are Kohli’s teammates.</p>
<p>At the World Cup, I believe Babar will score a lot of runs. He will like playing in the 50-over format under these circumstances. Babar is the kind of person who enjoys taking the initiative and is practically the anchor of Pakistan’s batting order, according to Sthalekar.</p>
<p>She said, “They have explosive guys around him, and he can play his own brand of baseball and just eke out runs until, before you know it, he’s already up to triple digits.</p>
<p>Smith will bat in the middle of the order for Sthalekar because of his ability to manage innings.</p>
<p>“He (Smith) is a person who has tailored his manner to a variety of circumstances. He can control the innings from there because he is a terrific player of spin, which I believe will be crucial in those middle overs.</p>
<p>Bumrah will bowl with the rising prodigy Shaheen Afridi in the bowling department.</p>
<p>“He (Afridi) has such devastating ball control. What he is capable of with his pace and if he experiences any movement. Again, he is the kind of bowler who can strike at the very last second. He has benefited from T20 cricket and will be very influential in the 50-over World Cup.</p>
