Border-Gavaskar Trophy all time XI

I don't know if you watched the 2001 series closely. On more occasions than not, Australia had great starts. For instance, at one stage, they were 2 for 214 in the first innings and 1 for 106 in second innings in Kolkata. In Chennai, they were in a dominant position at 3 for 340 in the first innings before Waugh thought he was playing a game of handball. Gilchrist and others around him couldn't capitalize on these starts. Pant did in Sydney 2019.

by that definition everyone with a bit of longevity has a “legacy.” If you want to call it that, fine. I’ll adapt and say he has no meaningful legacy. :)
If nothing else does, bringing together a dispirited team brought down by shameful umpiring in the previously test, to a first time victory in Perth in 2008 should do, as far as meaningful legacy does. Kumble is the leader India should have had for a decade, not just 2007-08.

Pant’s series wasn’t all about that last knock tbf, he was getting handy starts throughout. Was useful with the bat iirc.

Aussies when India beats an Aussie team or the batsmen or even A batsman dominates the bowlers without McGrath: “The pitches were flat. The bowling attack wasn’t world class. Warne has a ruptured fingernail from opening a tin of beans”

Aussies when India beats them with a noobie spinner: “They were better than an ATG team put together. The pitches were rank turners. We would still have won if Warne didn’t have gas from eating too many beans - he would have made ALL the difference”.

Whatever it takes!!!
They were flat batting decks too till the 4th day or so. Every one of them. Mumbai actually helped seamers a lot more than the spinners in the first digs for both sides, talking about the 2001 series.

You may disagree if you like. Even justify it with a reason. But straight up lying about what someone said is reprehensible. Not to mention stupid when anyone can see the post you're misrepresenting.
Mate, I just posted what you said. If that was stupid, that is you, deal with it.

Bumrah has a test high score of 10 and averages 2. Dizzy Gillespie has a test double century. Please edit your post, and put Gillespie at 9 as a show of respect to the great Australian all rounder.
