They looked much better in their second innings, but when captain Sourav Ganguly fell for 48 and India was 232 for 4, there was much to worry about. It was then that Dravid joined hands with the very special Laxman to put on a record 376 runs for the 5th wicket. The partnership became the platform for India's incredible 171-run victory in the Test
