5 friendly moments between India and Pakistan
#4 Chennai crowd's standing ovation
The first Test match of the 1998-99 series between India and Pakistan drew to a close with a dramatic ending as the latter won it by a measly margin of 12 runs by claiming the last four wickets for only four runs.
As stated previously, the series occurred at a time when the situation at the border was thorny.
The unanticipated finish to the match rubbed salt in the wounds of a broken-hearted Chennai crowd at the MA Chidambaram Stadium aka Chepauk stadium.
However, even in such an agonizing state, the crowd engineered a standing ovation for the triumphant visitors who, in turn, returned the favor by conducting a victory lap.
