|After the Australian juggernaut piled up 16 consecutive Test wins, arrived the Kolkata Test 2001. It was a notable performance by India that not only won the Test, but leveled the series, as well. As the Test begun, Australia put up a challenging total of 445, in spite of India's first ever Test hat-trick. In response, India packed for a measly 171 and has to follow on by Steve Waugh. It was still 274 runs behind and was losing wickets. Just after Ganguly left, Dravid joined Laxman and what happened then was an immense partnership of 376 runs. It helped India to make overwhelming 657/7.
