VVS Laxman is known as one of the greatest middle-order batters India have ever produced especially in the longest format. His 281-run knock against Australia at Eden Gardens in 2001 is still fresh in many Indian fans’ memories. The knock came when the Men in Blue were on the verge of losing the match but Laxman stood up from the front and displayed a gutted and brilliant knock as his inning included 44 fours.

Former Indian legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar is popularly known as the ‘God of cricket’ because of his numerous records in the game. His famous 241-run knock against Australia is known as the greatest Test inning he ever played in his Test career. The most interesting thing about that knock was that he didn’t play a single cover drive but still managed to hit 33 fours.

The young Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant played a historical knock against Australia in 2021 at Gabba as he smashed 89 runs off just 138 deliveries. Chasing the target of 328 runs on the final day of the Test, it looked like the Indian batting lineup would surrender in front of the mighty Australian bowlers but Pant had some different plans as he kept calm and smashed 9 fours and 1 six to lead the team for another series win in Australia.
