"This morning @skysports asked Athers, Ramiz & myself to pick two world 11's ! 90's & a Current one. This was the consensus after our selection meeting. Thoughts ? Agree / Disagree ? The two unlucky players to miss out in my opinion are Amla & Williamson. This is also a squad, the final 11 would be picked depending on conditions," Warne wrote on his Instagram account with the teams.

The openers for 90s team are Michael Slater of Australia and Pakistan's Saeed Anwar.
