Review on India 'Test win is one of greatest'The astounding, and close, win over Australia in the first Test against Australia in Mohali has won plaudits all around and Sunil Gavaskar, one of the cricketing world's legends, puts the triumph in perspective.
Impressed, the legendary batsman said that it is one of the greatest sporting achievements of the country.
"It has to be one of the greatest wins in Indian sports, not just in Indian cricket. It is by far India's narrowest win in Test cricket," Gavaskar said.
VVS Laxman battled severe back-pain to single-handedly take India to a memorable and miraculous one-wicket victory over Australia with a gritty unbeaten 73 at Mohali yesterday.
Gavaskar was all praise for the crucial 81-run partnership between Laxman and Ishant Sharma, which helped the hosts to inch closer to the 216-run victory target.
"The way it was achieved, when most of the major batsmen were out and eight wickets were down and India needed about 80-90 runs still to win... the way that partnership took place and took India close, I think it is got to be the greatest win and among the greatest achievements in Indian sports," Gavaskar said.
