  1. The second Tied Test, 1986
    The second Tied Test was also the first Test of a series, this time of three Tests played between Australia and India, at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Madras, in India between September 18 and September 22, 1986. The conditions were very hot and humid.[1]

    Australia 1st Innings
    Australia declared at 574 for 7 early on the third day. Dean Jones made 210, which was then the highest score by an Australian in a Test in India, having faced 330 balls and hit 27 fours and 2 sixes. He had to be treated in hospital after the completion of the innings for heat exhaustion. Australian coach Bob Simpson described it as "the greatest innings ever played for Australia". David Boon scored 122, and Australian captain, Allan Border, 106.
    India 1st Innings
    India lost 7 wickets for 270 runs by the end of the third day, and were all out for 397, avoiding the follow on by only 23 runs and trailing by 177. Indian captain Kapil Dev made 119 and Greg Matthews took 5-103 wearing a sweater to prove his toughness. Sunil Gavaskar became the first Test cricketer to make 100 consecutive Test appearances.
    Australia 2nd Innings
    Australia declared at 170 for 5, their overnight score at the end of the fourth day, setting India a target of 348 to win.
    India 2nd Innings
    Starting positively, India reached 204 for 2, when Gavaskar was third out for 90. India reached 291 for 5 when Chandrakant Pandit was out. A flurry of tail-end wickets fell to leave India on 344 for 9 by the last over.
    [edit] Last over of the Indian second innings
    Greg Matthews was bowling to Ravi Shastri, with India's last man Maninder Singh at the bowler's end. India needed four runs to win from the 6-ball over with only one wicket remaining.

    1st ball : To Shastri: no run. Four runs required off five balls.
    2nd ball : Shastri took two runs, retaining the strike. Two runs required off four balls.
    3rd ball : Shastri pushed the ball to square leg for a single. The scores were tied, with one run required for victory, but the Indian 11th man was now on strike.
    4th ball : To Singh: no run. One run required off two balls.
    5th ball : The ball hit Singh on his back leg and umpire Vikram Raju called him out leg before wicket after a loud appeal.
    India were all out for 347, Matthews having taken 5-146 (10-249 in the match) and Ray Bright 5-94, and the match was the second tie in Test cricket. Dean Jones and Kapil Dev were joint Men of the Match.
