What if these Indian legends parted by eras were to play in one team?
What would India’s All Time Dream Test XI look like? We’re already excited at the very thought of it. Let’s see how our All Time Dream Test XI for India looks like.
1. Openers

Sunil Gavaskar and Virender Sehwag

These two would form a perfect opening pair. These legends together will ensure that the team gets a perfect start. While Gavaskar would be about patience, Sehwag would be about destruction.

2. Middle Order

One Down: Rahul Dravid

Clearly, there’s no contender to take away the crucial number 3 spot from ‘The Wall.’ Rahul Dravid owns this place without even an iota of doubt.
Two Down: Sachin Tendulkar

Master Blaster is the leader of almost all batting records. 51 Test Hundreds is no joke! Sachin would any day feature in any dream XI be it for India or the world.
Three Down: Virat Kohli (Captain)


With Sachin in the team, Kohli would have to compromise on the number 4 spot. If Sachin’s a legend then Kohli is the most promising batsman to match his stature. We also give Kohli the important responsibility of being the Captain of the side given his aggression.

Fourth Down: VVS Laxman

Very Very Special Laxman will very much be a part of this very very special dream team. Laxman was a wrist player of a unique kind and you can’t keep him away from this team.

3. Wicketkeeper

MS Dhoni

Even though he has hung his boots for the longest format, we would still go with him. He’s the best of all wicketkeeper batsmen to have ever played for India.
4. All Rounder

Kapil Dev (Vice Captain)

You can’t find a better all rounder in history of Indian cricket. Kapil Dev will make this hefty team look even more graceful and handsome.

5. Bowlers

Anil Kumble
Zaheer Khan
Bhuvneshwar Kumar
