Thank you Sir…Brings back great memories of Gary Cosier, John Dyson, Peter Toohey, Craig Sergeant and many more..love the bowling action of Ghavri! The excitement remains even in the absence of the Packer Stars like Chappell Marsh and Lillee!

  8. What an effort by you Jai! I listened to the air commentary of this test. I still remember India won the test at about 5 45 am local time by an innings and 2 runs after Madan Lal took a stunner to dismiss Peter Toohey. Thank you so much Jai.

  10. Thank you , thank you, thank you …. I had been looking for this series ever since YouTube started. I had followed each minute of this series , ball-by-ball on the radio. I still remember getting up early in the morning and tuning in to the commentary. And what a series it was. Sadly we lost because of saome terrible batting in the 5th Adelaide Test and a brilliant hundred on debut by the local boy Graham Yallop. Please upload more videos of this series if it is possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless you Sir.

  12. Great share !! Although Australian side was little down & playing sans their impactful cricket faces due to a parallel league cricket crisis that plagued their country during this series , reminding of last series India played in Australia , yet they fought hard under the astute leadership of 41-year- old Bob Simpson who was called back from retirement especially to guide Australian team & eventually showed them the success, unlike what happened in the last tour..

  13. The fielder who took Serjeant's running catch off Bedi is Karsan Ghavri NOT Amarnath. The commentator jumbled up. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  15. Start of a fresh innings at the SCG. (23:20) Green outfield. Three slips, a gully, a silly point and a short leg. Thommo running in and Sunil Gavaskar taking strike. A sight for sore eyes.

  16. Great to watch this series. Only saw a short clip on YouTube previously on Bedi vs Hughes. Look forward to watching Amarnath, Gavaskar and Vishy tackling Thommo. Thanks Jai
