“The Test matches I have played, like all the seven Test matches, if I have to go through that, it has to be my debut in MCG. It has to be my favourite venue till now," he said.

Bumrah, meanwhile, picked a venue from South Africa, where he made his debut.

“Johannesburg. I just played one game over there, and I would like to play more games over there," he said.

New Zealand’s sensational pace duo Tim Southee and Trent Boult picked Lord’s and Adelaide Oval respectively.

“Lord’s. Just the history behind it and just turning up in Lord’s and somewhere that’s a very special place to play. Played there a few times and its somewhere where we always enjoy," said Southee.

“Mine is a little weird. Adelaide Oval. I really enjoyed playing there, the first pink-ball Test took place there. It was an amazing occasion. There were probably 50,000 people for every game for three days. Good atmosphere, good hype and a lot of history," quipped Boult.
