I can't forget that tens test, full of thrill, here in my home I was watching on TV and that was a great shinny but rainy day. I was on feet until India All Out.

I remember being in the ground for this match. I was crying till I reached home after the match....What a match and what performances......Saqlain, Afridi, Prasad, Akram, Tendulkar.....The standing ovation that the Chennai crowd gave....

OMG! Was he ever that good that the non-striker actually had to indicate to the batsman which way the bowl is going to go!!! :D. Well, I can believe him because he was bowling against Pakistan batting line-up.
