Australia in India, 2010

India v Australia, 1st Test, Mohali, Oct 1-5

Mohali Test, day five: Laxman guides India to remarkable Test victory

VVS Laxman struck a superb unbeaten 73 as India fought back from the brink of defeat to beat Australia by one wicket in a thrilling first Test in Mohali. Laxman, batting with a runner due to a back injury, was ably assisted by tail-ender Ishant Sharma as India rallied from 124-8 to within sight of victory. Sharma made 31 before being trapped leg before wicket by Ben Hilfenhaus. With 11 still needed, Laxman was joined by last-man Pragyan Ojha and they got India home in a nailbiting finish. This was India's first one-wicket victory in Tests. The 81-run partnership for the ninth wicket between VVS Laxman and Ishant Sharma was the second-highest against Australia, behind the 89-run stand between Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan in 2004.India lead two-match series 1-0 ahead of second Test in Bangalore
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 5: India 405 (Tendulkar 98, Raina 86, Johnson 5-64) and 216 for 9 (Laxman 73*, Hilfenhaus 4-57, Bollinger 3-32) beat Australia 428 (Watson 126, Paine 92, Zaheer 5-94) and 192 (Watson 56, Ishant 3-34, Zaheer 3-43) by 1 wicket

Mohali Test, day four: Australia sniff victory

Australia ended Day 4 in the first Test at Mohali on a high, reducing India to 55 for four, after 17 overs, in their second innings at stumps on Monday.
The hosts need 161 runs more for what now seems an improbable victory.Earlier, in the day's final session, the Indian bowlers put in an inspired display to dismiss Australia cheaply in their second innings. Zaheer and Ishant were the pick of Indian bowlers with three wickets apiece, while both the spinners, Harbhajan and Ojha, picked two each. The visitors made 192 (in 60.5 overs) for an overall lead of 215.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 4: India 405 and 55 for 4 (Tendulkar 10*, Zaheer 5*, Hilfenhaus 3-22) need another 161 runs to beat Australia 428 and 192 (Watson 56, Ishant 3-34, Zaheer 3-43)

Mohali Test, day two: A world record for Sehwag as India fight back‎

India rode on Virender Sehwag's record-equalling half-century to reach 110-2 in their first innings in reply to Australia's 428 in the opening Test on Saturday. The Indian opener scored a blazing 59 off 54 balls with 10 fours in the final session after Australian wicketkeeper Tim Paine (92) had missed out on a maiden Test hundred. Sehwag equalled the record of scoring a 50 or more in 11 consecutive Tests. West Indies' Viv Richards and Indian Gautam Gambhir are the other batsmen to have achieved the feat.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 2: India 110 for 2 (Sehwag 59) trail Australia 428 (Watson 126, Paine 92, Ponting 71, Zaheer 5-94) by 318 runs

Mohali Test, day one: Watson hits ton before Zaheer strikes‎

Shane Watson made the most of two dropped catches to score a century as Australia posted 224-5 in their first innings at stumps on the opening day of the first Test against India on Friday. He was involved in a 141-run stand for the second wicket with skipper Ricky Ponting (71).
Australia had elected to bat after winning the toss. Australia captain Ricky Ponting got into a verbal spat with India's fast bowler Zaheer Khan after he was run out for 71 by a direct throw by Suresh Raina. As the two got into a heated exchange of words, umpire Billy Bowden rushed in to calmed them down. The incident is likely to be reported by the umpires to the match referee Chris Broad.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 1: Australia 224 for 5 (Watson 101*, Ponting 71, Zaheer 3-45) v India
