India vs Australia Test Series: Currently the season of Team India is running in cricket. In the year 2023, the Indian team has claimed every series so far. Created a world record with huge wins. Team India, which has defeated two countries in two months, is now ready to face the third team. Australia will play the Test series from February 9. But an incident that happened 45 years ago is recorded in history. The Indian team missed a big opportunity in the year 1978. On this day, a scene was recorded in the history of Team India.
Decisive battle in Adelaide Test..
In 1978, a Test match was held between India and Australia at the Adelaide ground. In that Test, the Indian team led by Bishan Singh Bedi put the Australian team led by Bob Simpson in trouble. The first 4 matches of the five-match Test series have been concluded. This made the series 2-2. In such a situation, the final Test is like a decisive battle in a way. Its result was declared on 3rd February 1978. That means that then Test matches were held for 6 days instead of 5 days.
Chasing record that was missed 45 years ago..
In the final Test of the series in Adelaide, the host Australia batted first and scored 505 runs in the first innings. With this, the Indian team was bowled out for 269 runs. But India bowled out Australia’s second innings for 256 runs. This set India a target of 493 runs. But, the Indian team was 47 runs short of the target. He scored only 445 runs. Had India achieved that goal on that day, it would have maintained an unmatched record even today. Because so far in the history of Test cricket there has not been such a big score chase.
The record for most successful run chases in Test cricket is currently held by the West Indies (418 runs). He scored this against Australia in the year 2003.
