VVS Laxman told the story

VVS Laxman once wrote in the column of Times of India that, ‘Rahul Dravid played in this test match due to viral fever. He was facing difficulties on many occasions but despite this, he played an innings of 180 runs.

He was the vice-captain and he handed me his number-3 position in the second innings. The spirit he showed again by landing at No. 6 at the crease is an education for all.

India won this Test match by 171 runs even while playing follow-on. What happened in this match was recorded on the pages of the history of Test cricket.

Australia had scored 445 runs in the first play, in response, the Indian team was reduced to just 171 runs. After this, Team India had to play follow-on and the score was 4 wickets at 232 at one time. India was still 42 runs behind.
