Match Notes

Australia tour of India 2000-01 News

  • Tendulkar's revenge

    Sachin Tendulkar's 126 in the 2001 Chennai Test against Australia was achieved by reining in his instincts when facing Glen McGrath and helped win India the series - but he remembered the bowler's goading when the ODIs began

  • When McGrath mastered the Master

    After two consecutive whitewashes, it's worth reflecting on some of the great passages of play between India and Australia - my favourite of which was the four-ball spell by Glenn McGrath to Sachin Tendulkar at Eden Gardens a dozen years ago

  • Hayden relives the 2001 tour to India

    Matthew Hayden reflects on the historic 2001 series against India, and how integral the tour was to him and his Test career with Australia

  • Mumbai '01 - An underrated classic

    India may have been mauled, but Tendulkar and Dravid came together to script one of the most absorbing sessions of Test cricket

  • Dravid gets a hundred at Eden

    India's go-to guy steps up and answers the doubters
