Brian Lara is one of the gurus of international cricket. Cricket enthusiasts worshipped the big honcho and want to rule in the ground like him. Brian Lara Tweets his ‘Top Fives’ List & it Marks 2 Pakistani LEGENDS.

The list features Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, and Muralitharan with Wasim and Waqar in the list. The International Cricket Council (ICC) may have left in the cold Pakistani cricketers and icons in their Teams of the Decade but Brian Lara, one of the greatest to ever play cricket, has included not one but two Pakistani cricketers in his ‘Top Fives’ list.

Cricket freaks are flabbergasted on ICC Teams of the Decade list, THAT ENTAILS NO PAKISTANI STAR
The ICC on Sunday announced their cricket Teams of the Decade in all three formats of the game and no cricketer from Pakistan could make any list. It is unbelievable that how come in 10 years not even a single Pakistani cricketer could not perform well to fit into the list.
ICC Awards is a program aimed at celebrating the stand-out performers and moments from the past ten years of international cricket. Though, earlier this month, ICC had nominated five Pakistani players including Misbah-ul Haq, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Hafeez, Sana Mir, and Javeria Khan in the Men’s and Women’s ODI Team of the Decade (TOTD) category.
ICC Men’s ODI Team of the Decade:
Rohit Sharma, David Warner, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Shakib al Hasan, MS Dhoni (wk & C), Ben Stokes, Mitchell Starc, Trent Boult, Imran Tahir, Lasith Malinga
ICC Women’s ODI Team of the Decade:
Alyssa Healy, Suzie Bates, Mithali Raj, Meg Lanning (C), Stefanie Taylor, Sarah Taylor (wk), Elysse Perry, Dan Van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Jhulan Goswami, Anisa Mohammad
But Pakistan is in seventh heaven for its two stars to be on the list of one of the gurus of world-class cricket.
