Bird named his team in an interview with The Telegraph ahead of his 80th birthday yesterday. The cricket fraternity has expressed shock at the omission of legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Don Bradman.
Bird’s team does not even feature some great names like Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, West Indian fast bowlers Malcolm Marshall, Andy Roberts, Joel Garner and Michael Holding.
