Australia, in their quest to conquer the 'final frontier' in 2001, were jolted in Kolkata when the venue had provided the perfect turnaround courtesy a VVS Laxman-Rahul Dravid epic show. Down 0-1, India had gone on to win the series 2-1 with back-to-back victories at Eden Gardens and Chepauk.
The historic series, now a part of a cricketing folklore, will certainly serve as an inspiration for the beleaguered Dhoni's men.
