Sachin Tendulkar terrorizes Australia in Sharjah

Every Indian cricket fan remembers this match.

As India were vying for a spot in the final of the Coca-Cola Cup in Sharjah, they were up against Australia.

With a target of 285 to chase, India had to score at least 254 to qualify.

However, a rain-interruption brought the required qualifying target down to 237, as Sachin Tendulkar's 131-ball 143 sealed India's final spot.

India's historic ODI series win in Australia

Before 2008, India had won only one ODI series, in Australia. The win had come in 1985.

However, in 2008, India stomped their authority in CB Series by winning the first final.

The second final saw Tendulkar score 91, allowing India to post 258/9.

In reply, Australia fought back, while Irfan Pathan defended 13 runs in the final over to hand India the trophy.
