Four Australians, four Indians, two West Indians and one Pakistani were named in the Dream XI via the ICC’s official website ahead of the India vs England clash in London this week.
Bradman was an almost automatic inclusion given his unsurpassed Test average and unbelievable batting feats.
And having dominated one of the greatest actual Test sides ever assembled, the master spinner, the prolific wicketkeeper-batsman and the brilliant pace bowler were fitting inclusions.
Perhaps the most controversial inclusion was Kapil Dev as the all-rounder, who beat England legend Sir Ian Botham.
And there was no place for Muttiah Muralitharan - despite him having taken the most Test wickets in the history of the game.
Clive Lloyd, captain of the fearsome West Indian side of the 70s and 80s was also a notable omission - as was that side's 'Master Blaster' Sir Viv Richards
Virender Sehwag and Sunil Gavaskar were named the openers, Sachin Tendulkar was named at four, West Indian genius Brian Lara at five and Dev at six.
Gilchrist, Warne, Wasim Akram and Curtley Ambrose rounded out the team.
"It would have been quite special to see this team take the field of play given the array of batting and bowling talent contained within the playing eleven,” Haroon Lorgat, ICC Chief Executive, said.
"Selecting from such greats is no easy job, and not surprisingly, the selection mainly reflects modern players seen by present day supporters.
“There are many greats from the past who would have easily merited selection in this team, but it is nevertheless interesting to see the fans view on their greatest eleven of all time."
