Indian commentator and sports presenter Harsha Bhogle has picked India’s all-time Test XI. Virat Kohli & Ravichandra Ashwin were named from the current squad by Bhogle.

For any cricket pundit or an ardent supporter of the Team India side, naming an all-time playing XI has always been a tough ask. When it comes to naming Team India’s all-time XI, it’s impossible to do justice with most icons of the gentlemen’s game. 

Kohli and Ashwin are only from the current squad in Harsha Bhogle’s team

Harsha Bhogle named his all-time Team India XI and surprised a couple of fans by only mentioning two active cricketers in his fantasy lineup. Bhogle only named Indian skipper Virat Kohli, spin wizard Ravichandran Ashwin from the current squad in his all-time India XI.

Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Harbhajan Singh, and Mohammad Azharuddin were not named in India’s all-time Test XI by Bhogle. He picked batting maestro Sunil Gavaskar and legendary opener Virender Sehwag as the openers of his all-time XI. Gavaskar shattered a plethora of records with his elegant batsmanship. Sehwag revolutionized the role of opener with his free-scoring style of batting.
