If there is one thing in the cricketing world that guarantees some great fireworks, it’s definitely fiery India vs Australia matches. The sledging affair levels up to a great extent and the rivalry is very evident.
Here are some of the best India vs Australia encounters:-
1. Second Test, Border–Gavaskar Trophy (2000–2001)
This has to be on No. 1, the greatest Test match of all time. Australians were on a 16-match unbeaten streak and Indian team was struggling real hard to go through. However, the very special knock by VVS Lakshman (281) and great support by the ‘Wall’ - Rahul Dravid (180), Indian team made Australia bite the dust.
2). 1st Test, Australia tour of India (2012-13)
When the extremely talented Mahendra Singh Dhoni was going through a rough patch, many fingers were pointed at his caliber and potential. Some asked him to retire, while others abashed him badly but the ‘Thalaiva’ returned and how. India won by 7 wickets in this game and MSD played a brilliant knock of 224 runs to get India to reach the victorious land.
3). 1st Test, Border–Gavaskar Trophy (2014–2015)
Australia won this match by 48 runs but what really caught everyone’s attention was Virat Kohli’s lone fighter performance. While the Indian side struggled to fetch runs, Kohli played god innings and scored 115 and 141 runs. It was Kohli’s first time as a Test captain and he definitely had put up a blockbuster show for the spectators.
