Australian legend and arguably the greatest spinner in cricket history, Shane Warne, has continued his series of naming the best XI from countries he has played against, and this time, he has picked the greatest Test XI from India. Unsurprisingly, Shane Warne picked his toughest competitor on the field and a good friend off it, Sachin Tendulkar at no. 4.
Shane Warne said selecting his India XI was his toughest team to date, with the biggest decision the choice between VVS Laxman and Mohammad Azharuddin at No.6. Ultimately, Warne picked former Indian captain Mohammad Azharrudin at no. 6, keeping VVS Laxman as the 12th man.
