India win!

Yahooooooo! India beat Australia in the Mohali test cricket match! This is India's narrowest margin ever in a test match win.

India retains the Gavaskar-Border trophy.

Hats off to VVS Laxman for doing this again against Australia. And Ishant Sharma, take a bow man... you stuck out there against the lethal Aussie bowling attack and believed in yourself. The 9th wicket partnership of 80 runs between VVS Laxman and Ishant Sharma did the trick. Great game to witness!

Aussies fought really hard but Ricky Ponting will have to wait for a test match victory in India as a captain.

Ricky Ponting: "It was one of the exciting test matches I have played. Full credit to India; they outplayed us today. We tried our best. It was satisfying effort from the boys. I told them to just take out the scorecard out of the mind. The partnership between Ishant an Laxman was great and it made the difference I guess. Bollinger's injury probably didnt help us there; we needed a fresh bowler to give it a shake but that's the game."
Ravi Shastri: "This is what you play for. This is real cricket."
Can't sleep now!
