Clarke picks Muralitharan as 12th man in his best Test side

ANI  |  Melbourne [Australia] 

Legendary spinner and South Africa's Dale Steyn have been named alongside one another by former Australian skipper Michael Clarke in his best ever Test side.

Warne has been chosen as a captain of a well-rounded Playing XI, with spin rival Muttiah Muralitharan edging into the hypothetical team as 12th man.

Clarke has revealed the line-up in his autobiography 'My Story', where he named seven Australians alongside five players from opposing nations, cricket.com.au reported.

The 35-year-old has picked the dashing duo of Michael Slater and Matthew Hayden as the openers, with former Test skipper coming in at first drop.

Legendry batsman has been named at No.4 spot followed by West Indies' Brian Lara and all-rounder Jacques Kallis of South Africa.

Adam Gilchrist has been picked as wicket-keeper while Mitchell Johnson, fiery Steyn, legendary seamer Glenn McGrath and Warne, thus forming a fearsome bowling attack.

Steyn's selection in Clarke's greatest Test side might came as a surprise as the duo had been engaged in a verbal altercation during the 2014 three-match Test series, which Australia went on to win by 2-1.

Muralitharan, the 12th man in the squad, has been named to carry the drinks in Clarke's team.

Clarke's all time Playing XI is as follows:

Michael Slater, Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis, Adam Gilchrist, Mitchell Johnson, Dale Steyn, Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Muttiah Muralitharan.
