Sid and guest host Saurabh Alurkar discuss how everybody was predicting a comprehensive 4-0 win for Australia after India got all out for 36 in the first test match of the series. But with its Captain, Kohli, gone and many main players injured and out of the series, the Vice-Captain, Rahane, leading the team of many debutants, had different plans. His fighting Century knock in the second match leading to their win reversed the momentum, resulting in the most memorable series win for India against Australia in Australia.
