Morgan was seen posting his all-time Test XI of various countries which included India as well. Morgan went with Sunil Gavaskar and Sehwag to open the innings which was followed by Virat Kohli at the no 3 position, which irked the Indian fans. Rahul Dravid is arguably the best player to bat at that spot and holds the record of playing most no of deliveries in Test cricket. Although Virat has achieved a lot in his career, the Indian fans were of the opinion that Dravid is the ideal cricketer for that position.

Journalist Morgan then went with Tendulkar, Laxman, and Dhoni for the next three spots with Dhoni leading the side and managing the role of the wicket-keeper. Many fans also felt that Kohli can bat at Laxman’s place, although Laxman has played a number of magical innings for India batting at that spot.

The best all-rounder India has ever produced, Kapil Dev was chosen as the only all-rounder, followed Javagal Srinath, Bisen Singh Bedi, Zaheer Khan, and Anil Kumble to lead the bowling pack.
