Australian stars Steve Smith and David Warner both formed a 10-year International Cricket Council test team, but the announcement was controversial.
The retired Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara has been selected as the keeper of the same team since 2008, when he was out of qualification, even though he had not worn wicket-keeping gloves in the test.
Smith and Warner were the certainty of a team full of the best players the world has seen since 2010, including captain-nominated Indian megastar Virat Kohli.
In the meantime, the Australian duo have tested 50 times over the last decade, achieving Smith 26 since their debut in 2019 and Warner 24 since winning the buggy green in 2011.
The Australian bowler was not nominated, including the new England ball tag team of James Anderson and Stuart Broad.
However, Mitchell Starc formed a 10-year ODI team with Warner, who was nominated by only two Australians.
Australian whiteball captains Aaron Finch and Glen Maxwell have created a 10-year T20 team. This is also the only Australian in the lineup that includes MS Doni as captain.
Meg Running and her fellow Australian T20 World Cup winner heroes have formed a 10-year-old female T20 team.
Lanning was recognized for his position in World Cricket and was nominated as captain of both the ODI and T20 teams.
Star-all-rounder Ellyse Perry and keeper Alyssa Healy have also formed both teams, and Australian high-speed bowler Megan Shut is also included in the T20 team.
