With CricTracker announcing the best U-25 ODI XI a few days back, the Test-match XI is something many certainly have been looking forward to.

The Test-match XI sees players from different countries who most certainly have the potential to make an impact when it comes to playing Test cricket for the 5-10 years at the very least.

It features the most promising names from India, Bangladesh, England and even South Africa. That said, here is the best XI for Test matches featuring some of the names that will resonate in the many years to come.

24-year old Lokesh Rahul has already underlined his credentials as a top batsman for India with four centuries to his name. The funny part of it all is the simple fact that all of these tons have been scored overseas.

However, the fact of the matter is that Rahul does not require the numbers to justify his place in India’s Test team. The Karnataka batsman’s fantastic batting acumen, patience, as well as his impressive calmness under pressure is something that sets him apart from rest of the batsmen in this generation.

Rahul’s RCB teammate Chris Gayle has also gone on to compare the Indian opener to incumbent Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Moreover, Rahul’s wicket-keeping skills are also an added bonus but that is something he needs to work a bit on. Till then he is definitely one name to keep an eye on.
