Former Australian spinner Jason Krejza became the latest inductee in the list of players to reveal his all-time XI. In an interview with CricketCountry correspondent Abhishek Kumar, the humorous Krejza picked himself as the 12th man, in a team of legends, asking for another opportunity. Krejza represented his nation in only 2 Tests despite taking a stunning 8-wicket haul, on his Test debut, against India at Nagpur in 2008, becoming only the sixth bowler to achieve the feat. However, it also turned out to be the most expensive spell by a debutant then. (Sri Lanka s Suraj Randiv later took over the record, conceding 222 runs against India in 2010.)

Krejza, picking himself in his team, is not the only interesting part. He, in fact, explained every selection with a one-liner. Other than him, Graeme Swann was the cricketer to pick himself in his all-time XI, as a lead spinner, but not as 12th man like Krejza. Both are equally fun-loving nonetheless.
