Chris Gayle, 2 Virender Sehwag, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suresh Raina, 5 Rohit Sharma, 6 MS Dhoni (capt, wk), 7 Dwayne Bravo, 8 Sunil Narine, 9 R Ashwin, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Lasith Malinga The captainMS Dhoni was the overwhelming favourite to lead the side, for various reasons.

Link "The top Test performances from the last 50 years include scarcely believable turnarounds, a dustbin aid, and big whiskers" I am not too worried about the exact positions in the ranking. As long as it serves to recap or enlighten us on some of the greatest test performances in test cricket over the last 50 years, it is great! PS below is my test 11 from players who played in the last 50 years: * Gavaskar - Best opener of AT * Sehwag - Best opener with Avg and SR combination and a dossier full of double and triple 100s * Richards - An explosive test batsman with a test avg of 58 b/w 1976-1985. Can bat anywhere in the top 6. Averages 62 at #3 * Lara - One of those batsmen who can win you a test with his bat. Tons of big scores and records. Can bat anywhere from 3 to 5 * Sobers (Captain) - Known as the greatest cricketer of AT. Destructive with the bat to win a test with it and innovative with the ball. Has a phenomenal test career batting avg of 58. Can bat anywhere from 3 to 6 * Gilchrist - A genuine wkt-all-rounder * Marshall - The name says it all. Often regarded by other fast bowlers as the complete bowler * Warne - One of the two AT best spinner * Ambrose - A bowler who can win tests from tough situations * Murali - One of the two AT best spinners * McGrath - A bowler who believes in discipline Please feel free to use this thread to list your Test 11 from players who played in the last 50 years
