Dubai, Jul 2: To mark the 2,000th Test match, which will take place between England and India at Lord's from 21 to 25 July, the ICC has called on supporters from across the globe to select their greatest team of all time.
"With the 2,000th Test coming up it is appropriate to remember some of the great players through the ages that have thrilled audiences and inspired us all," said ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat.
"With so many legends of the game to choose from, it is a very difficult task and I'm sure one that will lead to plenty of fond recollection and great debate," Lorgat added in a statement.
Fans will have time until July 13 midnight to make their selections, with the lists to be announced a week before the Lord''s Test.
"Test cricket is the pinnacle format of our great sport and it is important we continue to protect and promote it so that it grows even stronger over the next 2,000 matches," he said.
