    Cricinfo's all time XIs - India

    India all-time XI: Openers | All-time XIs | Cricinfo Magazine | Cricinfo.com

    Fairly obvious I would think - Gavaskar and Sehwag.

    Definitely Gavaskar and Sehwag, followed by Dravid and Tendulkar. Kapil at 6 or 7.

    It really is sad that India have only produced two bowlers in recent history that could even be considered to open the bowling for an All Time Indian XI.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    God = Yuvraj Singh ?

    Also why would you have both Chandra and Kumble in the team, similar bowlers IMO and why do you have Azza ?

    Sunil Gavaskar
    Virender Sehwag
    Rahul Dravid
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Hazare/Viswanath/Laxman
    Farookh Engineer/MS Dhoni +
    Vinoo Mankad/batsman at 6
    Kapil Dev
    Javagal Srinath
    Erapalli Prasanna
    Bhagawat Chandrasekhar/Mohammad Nissar

    Prasanna is a must IMO, to spin the ball the other way. Plenty of Indian captains of the past have Prasanna ahead of Chandra and Bedi in their all time India XIs.

    EDIT: Wouldn't mind Subhash Gupte ahead of Chandrasekhar too.

    Gavaskar, Sehwag, Dravid, Tendulkar, Azhar-ud-din, Vishwanath, Dhoni, Kapil, Kumble, Srinath, Prasanna

    I would have gone for Chandra, but Kumble and Chandra looks carbon copies. Batting would be strong with batsmen up to #8, and Kumble and Srinath can hold the bat.On second thought tempting to select a slow bowling all rounder like Vinoo Mankad at #7 and add another fst bowler like Zaheer Khan or Amar Singh there. Md. Nissar would have been a good pick too.

    Vinoo Mankad is an automatic pick for an all-time India 11 IMO. The bowling is too weak for with just four and if we pick five bowlers I would definitely want a second all-rounder along with Kapil.

    Gavaskar
    Sehwag
    Dravid
    Tendulkar
    Azharuddin
    Mankad
    Dhoni
    Kapil Dev
    Kumble
    Srinath
    Gupte

    MSD over Farok Engineer or Kirmani is a criminal act!

    Also good to see Srinath ahead of Zaheer...we used to call Srinath 'the real deshpremi' due to his efforts on our dead soils!

    I didn't consider pre-partion players.And for those including Mohammed Nissar-well he is a Pakistani..just like Abdul Kardar.They both played for British India (present day Ind+Pak+Bang) but migrated to Pak post independence.Not sure you can include him

    Nissar played for just one team - India. He's fine.

    Why not Azhar? He certainly was the best middle order batsman India had in the 90s after Sachin.

    Yeah but Bedi was not the matchwinner Chandra used to be, especially overseas. Also I hate Bedi and perhaps S Gupte is a nice option.
