Several former cricket stars have chosen their all-time ODI XI, and going with the flow, Bishop, who is a part of the commentary panel in the ongoing World Cup, has also picked his best ODI XI. As mentioned above, the former pacer picked four Indians and just one player from Australia. Bishop's team don't have a single cricketer from England, Sri Lanka and New Zealand, which is a little surprising.
