Final Frontier, Conquered
The Australians have conquered the final frontier.They have broken the 35 year old jinx.Was a great disappointment for the indian fans.Event thought the serious had its usual IND Vs AUS drama.Everything was sealed after the 2nd test match in chennai.we can invent reasons like, if it didn't rain, we would have won the match and the morale would have been up, if Kishor Pradhan, the nagpur pitch curator would have shaved more grass of the pitch, if lakshmipathy was fit.But the bottomline we lost it.
This series seemed to lack something from the former one's.Let's remember some great moments these teams have produced and hope for some great test matches in the future.
2001 Eden gardens
The greatest comeback match.History was created on eden gardens march 2003.Dravid and VVS made a permanent seat for themselves in the cricket folklore.From a follow on to 171 run victory india crushed the aussies.And of course bhajji sealed the victory with his 13 wickets.
