#2 Polly Umrigar vs Australia at Chennai in 1956 (50th Test)

Polly Umrigar captained India in their 50th Test

After winning the toss and batting first, India could only manage 161 in their first innings as they were bamboozled by Richie Benaud’s leg breaks and googlies. The Australians responded well by scoring 319 in their first innings courtesy a fighting 73 by Ian Johnson. Vinoo Mankad picked up four wickets for India.

158 runs adrift of the Australian total, India faltered in their second innings too, losing wickets at regular intervals. Eventually, they were bowled out for 153 and England won the match by an innings and 5 runs. Certainly not a match to remember.
