Ep.104 of the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast: India’s all time greatest test and ODI XIs

Been a while since our last post – since then India have been thrashed in New Zealand, India women have lost the final of the T20 World Cup in Australia and of course Edges & Sledges has cracked its century.

In a parallel universe, today would have been the start of IPL 2020 and our IPL listener campaign. But given there is no live cricket in the time of the Coronavirus, here are the XIs picked by Ashwin, DJ and Varun on Episode 104 of the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast (released 29 March) for Team India’s all time greatest test XI and ODI XI.

Let us know what you guys think of our picks by writing in on Twitter. Try to not be too harsh – it’s just some fun and inevitably some obvious GOAT would have been omitted!

India's greatest test XI

 

Also, very happy to say that we have two episodes releasing this week – the GOAT India XIs on Monday 29 March and then we go through India’s journey to World Cup glory in 2011 on Thursday with a very special guest.

Stay tuned and follow the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast – there may be no live cricket but the show goes on!
