Former Indian cricketer Akash Chopra, who was recently selected as the best T20 team of the last decade and is currently working as a commentator, has now been selected as the best Test team XI of the decade. He told the team while sharing a video on his Instagram. His team includes many renowned players not only from India but from all over the world. Surprisingly, Akash has fielded only two players from Team India in the squad.

Akash selected England’s Alastair Cook as the team’s opener. He described Cook as the greatest cricketer in Test cricket. Hashim Amla has been selected to support Cook in the opening over of his triple century in Test cricket. Aakash had a lot of names to bat at number three, but in the end he chose Australia’s Steve Smith. Smith has scored more than 7,000 runs in the last decade. Aakash has selected India captain Virat Kohli to bat at number four in the team.
