If Australia gave a target of 328 runs, then hardly they would have thought that Team India will trample it in its own den. Today when he landed to play India on the 5th day, he also got the initial shock, but this is new India. It knows how victory is snatched away. First Shubman Gill, then Cheteshwar Pujar and Rishabh Pant took the front and then vanquished him by defeating him by 3 wickets at the Gaba International Stadium.
IND vs AUS: Gaba’s fort collapsed, Indian heroes waved tricolor
Waugh’s team was defeated in 2001 in Kolkata
The first such opportunity came in 2001. Australia had 16 consecutive Test wins and was fully committed and capable of retaining its invincible order. But Kolkata’s Eden Gardens Stadium again witnessed a match when not only Australia’s victory was broken but also the most spectacular victory in Indian cricket history.
Dravid, Laxman and Bhajji were heroes
Rahul Dravid and VVS. Laxman wrote the story of the Australian debacle and India beat Australia even after playing follow-on. How can that charismatic bowling of Harbhajan Singh be forgotten. He took a hat trick.
