Other Aussies who got a place in the XI are Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath. 

The Caribbean cricketer couldn't get a better all-rounder than Jacques Kallis in his XI. The former South African cricketer has played 166 Tests, in which, he scored 13,289 runs and picked up 292 wickets. He was first and the only player to achieve the mark of 10,000 runs in Tests & ODI each and more than 200 wickets in the Tests and ODIs each.
