Top 3 Greatest Indian Test partnerships in Australia
India's tours to Australia have often been seen as most important to Indian fans due to the heated rivalry between the teams both on and off the field with fiery characters from both sides elevating their game to the next level and series of controversies that have fueled it further. There have also been many classic matches for over 30 years.
While they have often ended in disappointment to India and its fans on Aussie soil, each tour and Tests has had its fair share of highlights and great moments that have eventually acted as building blocks to them finally conquering the Australian shores this time.
Test victories at Australia or anywhere overseas often come on the back of huge partnerships that set up the platform for the bowlers to deliver the knock out punch. In that regards, Team India has been blessed with some of the greatest batting partnerships such as Tendulkar-Dravid, Dravid-Laxman, Tendulkar- Laxman, Kohli- Rahane, etc. who have a knack of building monumental partnerships helping India put up insurmountable totals.
On the wake of the recently concluded historic series win in Australia, we look at 3 of the greatest partnerships in Australia by Indian pair that had an impact on the result of the match either victory, draw or impact in subsequent tours.
