With the series locked at 0-0 entering the 2nd test of the Border Gavaskar trophy in Australia, Australia quickly marched ahead making a mammoth 556 in the first innings.

India started their reply well before a typical collapse overseas saw them placed a precarious 85-4 staring down the barrel of an innings defeat. With the Aussies smelling blood, VVS Laxman joined Rahul Dravid and the pair put on 303 for the 5th wicket in one of the greatest partnerships ever against the World's best team then to single-handedly bring India back from a crushing defeat to near parity in the first innings. Dravid went on to score a magnificent 233 while VVS managed a majestic 148.

India went on to win the historic match in the second innings on the back of Ajit Agarkar's 6 wicket haul and the brilliance of Rahul Dravid again in the 4th innings while facing a daunting 233 run chase on the final day.

It was the first innings partnership between Dravid and Laxman that set up what is till date perhaps India's greatest Overseas win ever.
