Mathew Hayden will be at the top of the order facing the first ball and to complement him, I have got Rahul Dravid," said Sangakkara in a video published on social media by the Lord's Cricket Ground.

In the batting line up, the regal left-handed batsman picked his 'all time favourite batsman' Brian Lara along with former Aussie captain Ricky Ponting.

Top all-rounder Jacques Kallis will complete the line up and erstwhile Australian wicket keeper Adam Gilchrist will be donning the gloves behind the wicket.

The 46-year-old Sangakkara believes Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan are the two specialist spinners who are the best he has ever seen as they can bowl well in any condition.

The fast bowling department will have legendary Lankan pacer Chaminda Vaas along with former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram as Sangakkara viewed him as an 'unbelievable challenge' to face.

The list in total has four Australian and three Lankan while a lone spot for Indian, Pakistan, South African and West Indian players.
