Former Australian cricketer and spin bowler Shane Warne has created his Dream World Cup XI team, in which he did not include any of the new generation players.

After these, Australia captain Ricky Ponting (Australia) who won the World Cup twice in the third position. Brian Lara of West Indies at number four and Mark Waugh (Australia) at number five. Waugh, praising Mark, also called him the best all-rounder of his time. Sri Lanka wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara on sixth place.

These bowlers selected for the team
For the bowling attack, Warne selected ball-players like Shahid Afridi (Pakistan), Muttiah Muralitharan (Sri Lanka), Wasim Akram (Pakistan) and Glenn McGrath (Australia) in his dream team.
