Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has created a list of XI bald-headed cricketers which he named 'Test cricket greatest Bald XI.'

Vaughan, who shared the list on Instagram, went with Graham Gooch and Herschelle Gibbs as openers in his team. The No 3 spot belonged to South Africa's Hashim Amla who retired from international cricket last year.

The former skipper went with Australia’s Darren Lehmann at the No 4.

The fifth spot was given to England's Jonathan Trott, while the sixth spot was for another Englishman Brian Close, who is also the captain of the side.

Another former England wicket-keeper Matt Prior would bat at No 7 for the team. Prior represented England in 79 Tests, 68 ODIs and 10 T20Is in the course of his career.

Australia's Doug Bollinger and Nathan Lyon were also included in the team, along with Pakistan's Rana Naved. The number 11th spot seemed to have confused Vaughan a bit, as he put forward two names, England's left-arm orthodox spinner Jack Leach, and New Zealand's right-arm pacer Chris Martin.

Ashes: England’s Stuart Broad says 'relentlessness with the ball' will lead to wickets, not just express pace

Broad said it would be great to have the injured Jofra Archer in Australia and have that express pace, but his side's bowlers would need to move the ball and to be relentless.
