Rare honour for Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has been named captain of Cricket Australia's Test XI of the decade. In an XI that consists of the biggest names to have made a mark in the longest format of the game in the last 10 years, Kohli was hailed by CA for evolving into "one of the game's most respected figures over the years" apart from his prowess with the bat.

Kohli, however, would bat lower down the order in this XI with his regular number three position taken up by New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.Former England skipper Alastair Cook was selected as the opener with Australia's David Warner as his partner. Williamson is followed by Australian stalwart Steve Smith. Kohli comes in after Smith at No.5.
