It was the first match of the four Test series and the odds were in favour of the Australians to complete a whitewash. More importantly, no one expected the Indian bowling line-up to bowl out the Australians.
Things were looking grim for the Indians as Matthew Hayden and Ricky Ponting were going strong for a huge score. Weather played spoilsport for the first three days and Australia were looking to post a huge score on the board and then press for a win.
But Zaheer Khan, in a remarkable piece of reverse swing, swung the game. He took five wickets to rattle the Australian top-order and Australia ended up making only 323 runs after being in a comfortable position of 268-2.
India drew the Test match thanks to Sourav Ganguly's 144 runs.
