1977

The return of Bob Simpson

When the 41-year-old former captain came out of retirement to lead Australia against India

Fifth Test Match

Australia v India

With India putting on a record losing total in the second innings of 445, the deciding Test ended on a highly exciting note - a finale becoming an evenly fought series.

Fourth Test Match

Australia v India

Australia conceded the initiative early in the match, batting disastrously when dismissed for 131 and then dropping catches during those periods of India's innings when the pitch was encouraging their pace bowlers.
