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.
