India’s 71-Year Test presents the story of the Indian Men’s Cricket Team in what is considered one of its greatest recurring challenges – taking on Australia in Test cricket, Down Under.

Though perceived as a ‘modern’ rivalry, particularly compared to the Ashes, India’s quest for victory on Aussie soil dates back to 1947, the year the country gained independence. The journey has since spanned generations of superstar players and world-beating teams, and the two nations now highly prize the Border–Gavaskar Trophy.

Details

This publication charts how, on the shoulders of these ‘giants’, a confident and talented Indian touring side of 2018/19 was finally able to reach the summit. India’s 71-Year Test is a highly pictorial and easy-to-digest collection of short stories, key statistics and over 200 images from the first 12 tours to Australia – many of which were brought to light thanks to the Bradman Museum’s Holman Collection of historical press photographs. Ravi Shastri, who has the unique perspective of touring Australia both as a player and as coach of the successful side, has provided a comprehensive foreword based on his rare insights. Author bio: R Kaushik is one of India’s respected cricket writers with nearly three decades of experience. He worked for seven years with Newstime in Hyderabad, before moving to Bengaluru, where he was with Deccan Herald for 14 years and Wisden India for six years. He is presently a freelance writer based in Bengaluru. Kaushik has covered all ICC Cricket World Cups from 1996, has reported on more than 100 Test matches involving India across the cricketing world, and was witness to India’s historic 2–1 victory in Australia in 2018/19. He is also the co-author of Indian batting star VVS Laxman’s award-winning autobiography 281 and Beyond, which was released in November 2018.
