    Players who made their careers against india..

    It has been known for long time that if a cricket player is out of form then ask them to play against india and they will get back their form or lengthen their career. I can remember few players who have made their careers against india in this way.Iam giving a list here.More can be added and similarly other teams can also be compared..
    Pakistan- Afridi, Shoaib malik, saedd anwar.
    England- Graham gooch, Mike gatting.
    Aussies- Allan border, david boon,Mike whitney, Ponting
    South africa- Peter kirsten, Fanie de villiers, Cronje.
    Srilanka- Jayasuriya (matara mauler), ranatunga, aravinda de-silva
    Zimbabwe- Andy flower.
    New zealand- Danny Morrison, Nathan astle, Chris cairns, martin crowe.
    West indies- Viv richards, carl hooper.
    Hope it ends here.

    Why Younis Khan?? Sure, he'd never played such long innings before the test-series against India, but that doesn't mean he was out of form.
    my fav players are misbah ul haq, shoaib akhtar, dale steyn, morne morkel, shane bond, jimmy anderson,

    That knock is the defining innings of the Test career.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    From what i heard from pakistan newspapers is that younis khan's career is under threat if he would have failed in this series. So you can say that younis got a second life in his career becos of this series.

    On that criterion I think I'd add Dean Jones to the list too.

    I'd say Craig McMillan can thank some generous bowling & the flat wickets of India which has helped contribute to an over-inflated test average.

    Travis Friend, Henry Olonga, Douglas Hondo and Andy Flower from Zimbabwe too. I remember Friend and Olonga completely troubling the Indian batting lineup many times, and Hondo has a lot of good bowling figures against us.

    Dennis Amiss - I vaguely remember him making his breakthrough out there in 1972/73, after he had never done a thing at test level previously

    John Lever - 1976 and all that

    Nasser Hussain - for his comeback 100 in 1996
