Sachin in Wisden all-time World Test XI

London, Oct 23: India's Sachin Tendulkar has been named in the Wisden all-time World Test XI with the legendary Sir Don Bradman as captain.

According to a report in "BBC" on Wednesday, Wisden has put out the Best XI of all-time to mark the 150 years of its Cricketers' Almanack.

Tendulkar is the lone Indian in the XI. There is also place for former Australian spin legend Shane Warne. West Indies' Vivian Richards is also in.

The 40-year-old Tendulkar will retire from international cricket next month after playing his 200th Test against West Indies at his homeground Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Two of Richards' compatriots Garry Sobers and Malcolm Marshall also feature in the list. Another Asian to make the cut is Pakistan paceman Wasim Akram.

There are four Englishmen, Jack Hobbs, WG Grace, Allan Knott (wicketkeeper) and Sydney Barnes.
