Talking about the initiative, BCCI president Anurag Thakur said: "I have always believed that the heart of the game lies with its fans and what better way to celebrate the historic moment of 500th Test match by giving the fans a chance to vote for their 'Dream Team'. I am pleased that over 100,000 cricket fans have already voted to pick their top-order in the 'Dream Team' and I expect that number to grow manifolds in coming days."

BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke added: "This is a great campaign for the Indian cricket fans to come together and pick their favourite players in their team. We are expecting our fans to give a healthy competition to the legends of the game in their Dream Team."
