India and Australia’s test results
The Indian team attempted to create a pitch for this game that would make it impossible for left-handed batsmen to survive, and Rahul Dravid’s pitch design was successful. Off-stump for the left-handed hitter was kept dry. There was another advantage to this tactic. Five left-handed players made up Australia’s starting 11. These five could only score 38 runs when combined. Five lefties could only play 47 balls together due to the circumstances.
