Sachin a failure in 2001 Kolkata Test ?!!

Everybody talks about the historic win in 2001 kolkata test where india won the test after following on. and each one of us praised  Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman. for their partnership.

The haters of Sachin used these innings for the last 12 years to tarnish Sachin's image. They came with the memory of these innings whenever Dravid and VVS failed.

Sachin trapping Gilchrist lbw off the first ball.

But has anyone in the world talks or remembers Sachin's contribution in that test match?

It was Sachin Tendulkar along with Harbhajan Singh WON the match for  India which was heading towards a draw!!

It wasnt an easy task to bowl Australian batting lineup which included Heyden, Langer, Steve Waugh, Mark Waugh Ponting etc. and Aus was 24-0 at the lunch of the fifth day!

Sachin dismissed 3 Aus batsmen in the post lunch session on the 5th day of the test match. Including

Mathew Hayden-  The Top scorer of that innings!
Adam Gillchrist - off the first ball he faced.
Shane Warne - for a duck!
