Video: Brendon McCullum’s best-ever XI

Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has named a strong West Indies contingent in his best-ever cricketing XI, and added South Africa’s Jacques Kallis as his premier all-rounder.



McCullum was asked by Lord’s to name his all-time XI, with the criteria being that he had to have played with or against them, or have been strongly influenced by the men in question.

He named the usual suspects, like Sachin Tendulkar and Kallis, both of whom regularly make lists like this, but B-Mac also named countrymen Trent Boult and Tim Southee as his preferred pace pairing.

B-Mac’s XI: Chris Gayle, Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara, Viv Richards (c), Jacques Kallis, Adam Gilchrist, Mitchell Johnson, Shane Warne, Tim Southee, Trent Boult
