The best Indian Test cricket team ever? That’s debatable. In the 2000s, India boasted an impregnable batting order with an engine room consisting of two of the four highest Test run scorers in history and an attack featuring a duo in the top five wicket takers ever for spinners.
It’s an argument for another day. A better question now – Are these tourists Down Under India’s grittiest ever team? Maybe this isn’t even worthy of the talking heads considering India’s incredible fight in the four-match Test series which comes down to the decider in Brisbane starting on Friday.
