2nd Test, Day 5(five) Highlights video played at Punjab C.A. Stadium, Mohali, October 17-21, 2008

Talk about anything, be it the batting, the bowling or fielding. Nothing was less than top class, ofcourse it always requires such a top class effort to beat a World Class team. There were contributions from everyone. Starts from the top of the order - Sehwag and Gambhir, solid batting from the middle order - Ganguly, Tendulkar and Dhoni and then a superb all round bowling and fielding effort with contributions from one and all.

India win by 320 runs to go one up in this 4 match Test series.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the Man of the Match for his stupendous leadership on the field and not to forget, his wonderful knocks in both the innings of this Test. Now this is what you call, leading from the front and setting an example for one and all in the team.

Saurav Ganguly receives a special award as well. PCA greets him with a memento for this being his last test here. Ofcourse, we will see more of this elegant southpaw in the next two tests as the same squad has been retained.

Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly are felicitated by the Punjab Cricket Association, India v Australia, 2nd Test, Mohali, 5th day, October 21, 2008
Sachin Tendulkar gets a special award for becoming the first person to accumulate 12,000 runs in Test cricket, in a process, he crossed Brian Lara's record of being the highest run getter in Tests. That record lasted for 2 years before it was broken by none other than the Master Blaster himself.

This is the biggest ever win in terms of runs for India. They beat their previous best which they sealed against South Africa in Kanpur back in 1996. They had mauled South Africa by 280 runs on that occasion.
