15 wickets at Kolkata, 1956. India lost by 94 runs inside four days. Spin bowlers took all but four of the 39 wickets which fell on a pitch that encouraged them from the start and enabled Australia to win a low-scoring match with a day-and-a-half to spare. Leg-spinner Richie Benaud accounted for 11 wickets while conceding just 105 runs. He was well supported by off spinner Burke who took four wickets in the second innings. BenaudÃÂs match analysis remains the best ever by visiting bowler at Kolkata.
