Sunny takes India to brink (1979)

A marvelous fighting double century from Sunil Gavaskar almost took India to a famous victory over England.

Gavaskar's majestic 221 anchored India's chase of 438. When he was finally dismissed, only 50 runs were needed with 6 wickets in hand.

Late panic in the middle order left India stranded nine runs short with eight wickets down.
