India vs Australia Cricket Series 2007-08
IND vs AUS, First Test, Brisbane, (day 4): Australia beat India by 337 runs in first Test (1:0)
India, chasing 499 runs for victory, were bundled out for 161 and give Australia a 1-0 lead in the four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. It was Australia’s 15th consecutive Test victory and they are just one win away from equalling their world record of 16 set from October 1999 to February 2001.
India collapsed from 134 for five at tea and lost their last five wickets for 27 runs. Australia’s bowlers all shared the second innings wickets and clinched a comprehensive victory with left-armer Mitchell Johnson claiming 3-21 off 15 overs. Only V.V.S. Laxman (42) and Sourav Ganguly (40) mounted any resistance against the relentless Australian attack.
The series now heads to Sydney for the second Test, starting on Wednesday. The Australians’ last home series loss was 14 years ago to the West Indies 2-1 and they have been unbeaten in 26 subsequent home series.

Sehwag returns for Australia Test series
Sehwag was axed for Test series against Bangladesh, England and Pakistan after playing his last match in South Africa in January. He has so far scored 4,155 runs in 52 Tests with 12 centuries. The team now has seven batsmen, five pacemen, two spinners and two wicket-keeper batsmen.
Test squad for Australia tour: Anil Kumble (Captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Venkatsai Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, Ishant Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Wasim Jaffer, Virender Sehwag, Dinesh Karthik, Pankaj Singh
The one-day squad will be named later.
Anil Kumble to continue captaincy for Australia Tour
"Because of the injuries to the pacers, we have announced a list of 24 probables. However, the final 16-member squad for the Australia tour would be announced on December 12 after getting a final report on the players' fitness," BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said, refusing to entertain any other queries. Among the pacers, Zaheer Khan has sustained a heel injury while RP Singh is yet to recover from a side strain and both would miss the third Test against Pakistan. Munaf Patel, struggling with a back strain that restricts his movement, would also miss the Test against Pakistan.
Fellow pacer S Sreesanth is being treated for a shoulder injury and that has ruled him out of the Test series against Australia. There was a good news for the lovers of cricket that BCCI has, however, appointed former Test player Chetan Chauhan as the Administrative Manager for the Test Series in Australia.
Probable squad for Australia tour: Anil Kumble, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Sourav Ganguly, RP Singh, Munaf Patel, Zaheer Khan, VRV Singh, Pankaj Singh, Ishant Sharma, Murali Kartik, Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla, Aakash Chopra, Gautam Gambhir, Ranadeb Bose, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Parthiv Patel.
