Laxman seals dramatic 1 wicket win: 1st Test, D5 (Mohali)

VVS Laxman struck a superb unbeaten 73 as India fought back from the brink of defeat to beat Australia by one wicket.

Australia were looking at a certain win when Laxman was joined by tail-ender Ishant Sharma as they rallied from 124-8, but when he was dismissed for 31 the hosts still required 11 to win.

Laxman and last man Pragyan Ojha held their nerve to see India to their victory target of 216.

1st Test, Day 5 (Mohali). Oct 2010
