#7 India v Australia, Mohali, 2010

India and Australia have produced some test matches to be talked about in this century and this list cannot be completed without mentioning a couple of Ind/Aus encounters. The match seemed done and dusted when India were 8 down with 92 runs away from the target but VVS Laxman, who had a sore back was yet to spread his magic. Laxman batted with a runner for 32 overs during which he first had a partnership of 81 with Ishant Sharma and took India home with the support of Pragyan Ojha at the other end who survived for 19 balls. It was one of those thrilling hours of test cricket where one moment can be enough to decide the fate of the match. It could either be a wicket, a boundary, a dropped catch, in this case it was a couple of leg-byes from Pragyan Ojha which worked as the winning shot for India.
