India stopped most consecutive wins of Australia first time in 2001

The infamous Kolkata test and the innings of VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid is written in golden letter in history of cricket books. The partnership of 376 runs between the two in the challenging humidity of Kolkata was a test of endurance and skill, much like a brutal endurance sport. Despite the physical demands, the players displayed exceptional technique and finesse throughout the match.

During the final innings, Australia had to either bat for 75 overs to secure a draw or score 384 runs to win. At tea, with a score of 161 for 3, a draw seemed likely. However, the following session was one of the most intense in Test match history. In just 25 overs, 7 Australian players were out, with 3 of them falling to Sachin Tendulkar’s wrist spin and 4 to the incredible Harbhajan Singh, who had previously taken a hat-trick in the first innings and ended the match with 13 wickets. Even today, if you close your eyes and focus, you can still hear the crowd’s noise from that historic moment.
