Within the first session - it didn't even last seven - it was clear that the Indore Test would be dramatic, controversial, and the result was just around the corner. Wickets fell with alarming regularity: 14 on the first day and 16 on the second. India totalled just 109 and 163, after opting to bat first. Australia took a handy first-innings lead, and then chased down the paltry 76-run target without fuss. Just four wickets went to the quick bowlers. The pitch earned a "poor" rating, and Australia clawed back in the series after losing the first two Tests.
Now that the dust - and there was a lot of it on that pitch - has settled, Andrew McGlashan, Karthik Krishnaswamy and Kaustubh Kumar find that the Indore Test had many similarities to past Tests - like Pune 2017, or Mumbai 2004, or even Bengaluru 2017.
