Iconic Moments: India vs Australia in Tests

Mankaded, the final frontier, Shoulder Before Wicket and many more.

Die Another Day [2010]: India’s one-wicket win at Mohali was the stuff of sporting dreams. VVS Laxman (suffering from a sore back) and Ishant Sharma (who’d taken injections for a knee pain) came together at 124-8, with India needing 92 more for a win. Both batted with runners. It was a hopelessly comical situation. But Laxman willed himself on, finding minute gaps through the field, and racing to a quick fifty. Ishant hung on but India were 11 short when he was given LBW with an inside edge. Pragyan Ojha should have been given out LBW to Mitchell Johnson. He wasn’t, and he survived to score the runs to complete the scarcely believable win.
