Australia in India 2008 Cricket Test Series
IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh, Day 5: India thrash Australia by 320 runs (1:0)
Australia, which resumed the morning at 141-5 chasing an unlikely 516, lasted 18.4 overs on the fifth day after being rocked by Khan, who finished with 3-71. The defeat was Australia's seventh-heaviest by runs, eclipsing the 307-run loss to South Africa in 1969-70.
The first test in Bangalore was drawn and India will head to Delhi for the third match starting Oct. 29 looking to wrap up the series and regain the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh (Day 5): India 469 & 314 for 3 dec beat Australia 268 & 195 by 320 runs
IND v AUS, 1st Test, Bangalore, Day 5: India drew with Australia
Though the series is held 0-0, Australia definitely have some advantage going into the second Test at Mohali. While their batsmen chipped in with runs at crucial moments, including Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey's hundreds, their bowlers did not let India's famed batting line-up score big. Had it not been fighting knocks from Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan in the first innings, India would have been in deep trouble. Zaheer was the only India player who looked to trouble the opposition, both with the ball and the bat. Hopes dashed once again for Sachin Tendulkar as he failed to take over Brian Lara's record of highest Test runs as Cameron White claimed him as his maiden wicket. And the wait continues for the Little Master!
When Australia declared their innings for 298 runs on Monday morning, match suddenly opened up for both the sides but it reached its anti-climax. Australia batted half an hour and added just 35 runs before inviting India to bat. Losing five wickets on Sunday, Aussies lost one wicket of Shane Watson on the last day.
IND v AUS, 1st Test, Bangalore, Day 5: Australia 430 & 228-6 (73.0 overs) drew with India 360 & 177-4 (73.0 overs)
