Heroes for India

Adelaide Test: Kapil Dev took 8-106 in the first innings. Gavaskar piled up 166 runs along with half centuries from Kris Srikkanth and Chetan Sharma.

Melbourne Test: Ravi Shastri shines with 4-87. Srikkanth, Vengsarkar and Kapil smash fifties.

Sydney Test: Gavaskar slams his second ton of the series in his knock of 172 runs in the first innings. Srikkanth gets his maiden ton. Amarnath his 138 as India stack up 600 runs in their first innings. Shivlal Yadav takes 5-99.

Series Summary: A series with plenty of 'what ifs' to ponder about. India failed to overhaul the 126-run target in the second Test and was 59-2 with one session to go when rain washed out the match. Following on in the final Test, Australia slipped to 119-6 as India once again failed to close the game. In the first Test, India batted way too slowly to stack up 520 runs in the first innings.
