Aussies down under...

Finally India tame Aussies at their den...W.A.C.A. Perth, happens to be the world's fastest wicket. Just imagine friends Indian top order batsmen faced bowlers like Brett Lee, Shaun Tait, Johnson, Clark at W.A.C.A. and scored 300+ in both innings. Indian bowlers also performed well...Aussie batting line up was demolished in 50 overs in the first innings. I guess this test match should be remembered for two records...firstly India broke Australia's 10 years long unbeaten record at Perth and secondly Anil Kumble for hauling his 600th wickets. It was India, who put the brakes on Steve Waugh’s record streak in 2003 and it’s India again who have quashed Ponting’s chances to be the skipper with the most consecutive Test wins. Beating Australia also becomes all the more remarkable especially after being 2-0 down in the series and with the on and off field controversies that could have easily taken their focus away from the game. Hats off to Kumble's lad. Way to go guys.
