In the latest 81allout podcast we look back at the India-Australia rivalry in World Cups, from 1983 to 2015.
We chart the rise of this rivalry from its modest beginnings and talk about how the commercial rise of Indian cricket coincided with Australia’s purple patch.
Highlights: The Indian team’s depth in 1983, Chepauk’s cracking ODI debut, Jadeja’s diving catch, the institutionalisation of the Sachin-Sachin chant, Azhar’s decision to bowl at The Oval, Gillespie’s slower ball, Ponting walking on water, the Motera trap, and Smith’s never-ending golden summer.
