    all time Indian X1 simplified version

    yeah yeah, i know too many of these threads but couldn't resist starting one as i felt that that there needed to be simpler process and ofc there's no need to knock of one of Merchant [rated as the best opener by some] and Sehwag [2 triple 100s, tons of other big 100s and amongst the 4 to average 50+ after playing 50 or more tests] .... they can both be in the 11 *duh*

    as i said this is a simplified version, so select your 11 from the 21 short-listed below .... you can't go wrong with the 21 below

    your votes should be distributed in this manner
    5 to 6 batsmen ----> so if you want five batsmen in your 11, select 5 from the 6 below. if you want all 6 select all 6
    the 5 to 6 batsmen ----> Merchant, Gavaskar, Sehwag, Dravid, Tendulkar and Hazarre

    select 1 [if you went for 6 batsmen] or 2 [if you went for 5 batsmen] from the list below
    bowling all-rounders ----> Kapil, Mankad and Shastri

    1 WK [Ofc thats taken ]
    WK all-rounders ----> Engineer and Dhoni
    WK ----> Kirmani

    and 3 from the 9 guys below
    Quicks ---------> Amar, Nissar, Srinath and Zak
    Spinners -----> Chandra, Gupte, Kumble, Parsanna and Bedi
    Fastest gun in town

    You don't have enough batting options. Really should've included Azharuddin, umrigar, vengsarkar, viswanth and maybe ganguly and laxman

    yep, but this one is simplified version .... besides the 6 batsmen short-listed are good enough to do the job

    Mechant ----> FC avg of 72
    Gavaskar, Sehwag, Dravid and Tendulkar ----> all 50 +
    Hazare ----> 48

    with heavy weights like Merchant, Gavaskar, Sehwag, Tendulkar, Dravid and Hazare to chose from, i guess, 5 of them [as we are hoping that all of them would be in their best form] would do the job with a couple of them hitting big one .... the 5 can be supported by the 3 all-rounders

    my 11

    Merchant
    Gavaskar
    Sehwag
    Tendulkar
    Dravid
    Mankad
    Kapil
    Dhoni
    Chandra
    Nissar
    Amar

    with Mankad and Kapil, along with Nissar, Amar and Chandra, the wizard, the bowling has all the fire power. Sehwag can chip in with some off-spin too

    My XI -

    Engineer
    Gavaskar
    Dravid
    Tendulkar
    Azharuddin
    Vengsarkar
    Kapil
    Kumble
    Srinath
    Bedi
    Nissar

    Good trick to omit other middle-order batsmen from the poll so that Sehwag gets selected...I shall vote for the 9 who are in my XI and 2 random choices though that might not make a good playing XI...But I am helpless since I can't get my best XI from the poll...

    WoW .... so you have Engineer opening in an all-time X1 to accommodate someone like Md Azharuddin, who has been suspected of being involved in match-fixing and Vensarkar, who got most of his runs playing in Ind and who averages a poor 32 in 60+ tests he played abroad with his 3 100s at Lords to boast abt .... gr8 all-time X1

    and what more choice do you want Jaffar and Jaisima

    Yup, because playing well on Indian pitches is not a crime and because I believe Azharuddin and Vengsarkar were better test batsmen than Sehwag (though the situation may change in 2 years) or others...I don't state it as a fact, it is my belief...Beliefs will change from person to person...I didn't know I had to have the same beliefs like you to be able to post in this forum...

    In answer to the second part of your question, I would say no...A choice of 6 batsmen and 60 bowlers is OK...I want you as a National selector...Then we would see 2 batsmen and 12 bowlers in a 14 members Indian team...Sachin will get dropped for someone like Goni...I'm waiting for that day...Anyways, why do you need a poll?...If you want your favourite team then declare your favourite 11 members' team and the problem will be solved...

    Sehwag at three. Well it makes sense, I always knew you want India to collapse all the time.


    My team:
    1. Merchant
    2. Gavaskar
    3. Dravid
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Hazare
    6. Umrigar (Kumble and Bedi at home, Gupte and Chandrasekhar away)
    7. Kirmani
    8. Dev
    9. Gupte (away)/Bedi (home)
    10. Amar Singh
    11. Nissar
