Injured Laxman guides India to nail biting 1 wicket victory

VVS Laxman defied a back injury to make an unbeaten 73 as India rushed a amazing 1-wicket victory from the jaws of overcome in the first Test against Australia on Tuesday.

In a nail biting encounter, India sealed the cliffhanger by 1 wicket. India thrashed Australia in the1st Test of two-match series here at PCA ground in Mohali on Tuesday.

It was the Very Very Special Laxaman innings, which helped Team India to take 1-0 lead in the two test-series.

VVS Laxman made crucial 9th wicket partnership with Ishant Sharma (31) to take India close to the target of 216 runs.

However, Ishant Sharma fell prey to wrong decision of umpire Ian Gould, bringing Australia back to the match.

But After several ups and down, Laxman and Pragyan Ojha took India home. It must be one of the greatest innings by Laxman, who was playing with a runner due to back stiff.

Earlier, Zaheer and Sachin Tendulkar started final day's proceedings on positive note but Zaheer khan was dismissed by spinner Hauritz for 10 runs.

Later, Tendulkar and Laxman embarked on run chase brilliantly but confident Sachin Tendulkar was caught at Gully region off Bollinger for 38.

After Tendulkar’s dismissal India lost skipper Dhoni (2) and Harbhajan Singh (2) in fast session.

Credit should go to Ishant Sharma, who shown brilliant spirit against might Australian fast bowling attack.

Sharma's crucial partnership with Laxman helped India to win the Mohali Test.
