India defeated Australia in the historic Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21. However, the historic series wasn’t really ideal for India early on. They faced a humiliating defeat in the first match as they were all-out in the second innings for their lowest score of 36 in Test cricket. They eventually lost the game by eight wickets.

In the same match, Virat Kohli was involved in an unfortunate run-out in the first innings. Ajinkya Rahane drove the ball towards extra covers and rushed for a quick single. He saw there was no run there and sent Kohli back, who had already made it halfway down the track.

Recalling the incident, Rahane said that he was disappointed with the outcome more than Virat himself. “I was hurt and sad more than Virat Kohli when Virat was run-out in the Adelaide Test match in 2020/21,” he told Sports Yaari.

After the first match, India went on to win the second match in Melbourne and draw the third game in Sydney. In the end, India produced an absolute miracle as they won the match in Brisbane, and scripted history to win the series 2-1.

In the meantime, a documentary on India’s greatest comeback in Test cricket is in the works. ‘Bandon Mein Tha Dum,’ a production between Voot Select and legendary director Neeraj Pandey, has been announced. The documentary will release on the 16th of June.

“The human stories in this cricketing fairy tale elevated the series beyond a cricketing audience and created huge euphoria across all segments of the Indian society. The nation was gripped and it was therefore befitting for us to bring the story to the people of India of one of the greatest comebacks in the history of sports and cricket,” Pandey was quoted by Republic World.

“Nothing excited me more than retelling this story which went beyond high-quality cricket, hard work, perseverance, determination, commitment, sportsmanship, and decoding the x-factor through the mind of the players which repeated the David Vs Goliath story,” he further added.
