Sangakkara in Cook's all-time XI

The team is a formidable one with just one peculiarity – it has no Indian players in it. Apart from that, Cook’s former England teammate Kevin Pietersen is a notable exclusion. His middle order is made of Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, AB de Villiers, Kumar Sangakkara and Jacques Kallis...

Alastair Cook picked this side for Lords as part of an on-going series where they ask people to pick their all-time XI...but what most people don't mention is that the criteria for these sides is people that you played with or against, or those that influenced/inspired you....many especially Indians forget to read this in the description on the Lord's YouTube videos and go savage and feral when an Indian or their favourite is not picked or people that did not play international cricket was not picked.

Cook's team was realised online July last year!

And in the video, like everyone else explains the selections...the only one he never played with or against in his XI is Gooch who has been his long time batting mentor and fellow Essex player

The team has resurfaced again now given his retirement announcement and few Indians trying to make a big deal of not having an Indian in the side.
