was this the tour when L sivaramakrishnan made his debut?
If yes, I remember Gavaskar nicking in slips and his catch being dropped when India were chasing 48 to win the test.
Ultimately he nicked one too many and got out.

Gavaskar was known to be very correct technically - I used to think Gavaskar is a superman amongst cricketers and seeing him getting out was a bit unreal.

In my generation, there was a certain someone named Sachin Tendulkar who left a similar impression

Re: Cricket memories associated with years

My earliest memories.
- Folks listening as Anshuman Gaikwad was playing. Not sure if he is a batsman or bowler. I remember hearing such terms as gully, mid wicket first time in my life. Never understood them (nor now).
- First time heard of Kapil Dev
- 84 Final match in Australia. No TV, so only what appeared on news papers. + Ravi Shastri getting an Audi. First time heard Audi
- Gavaskar scoring his first and only one day century. Also watched it on a grainy black and white TV of a neighbor. Their antenna stood at 60 feet.
Incidentally I don't have recollection of 83 world cup.

Re: Cricket memories associated with years

It's wonderful perusing this thread.. and recounting the memories. I got a sling tv desi connection recently, so watched quite a lot of India NZ test match.

A cricket memory I have from my childhood and my family members still tease me about it.. Coming from Chandigarh of course Kapil Dev was and still is my most admired cricketer. I used to pray for Vengsarkar to get out so Kapil would come to bat.

In my generation, it was Ranjit Singh... at a national level. On an international level, Don Bradman

Re: Cricket memories associated with years

Same match that sgars pai mentioned above...

Mid or late 1980s. I remember watching the Test match between India and Australia that was tied! I watched it at a neighbor's B&W Crowne TV with shutters... .

I was young, barely understood cricket, but still knew the names of most of Indian cricketers as well as a few Aussies: Boon, Dean Jones, Border.

I remember the match because there was a mini-Aandhi followed by a rapid rainstorm where I lived. My grandfather was coming to our place from Ahmedabad. I was excited and was waiting for him while watching the match. The match was getting interesting, we were going to win... we needed one bloody run to win the match... but we didn't. After the match was over, I went by the bus stand and walked back home with the grandpa, and told him we didn't win the match. Good times

1996 World Cup:

The tournament that got an 'entire' generation of India acquainted and hooked to international cricket.


Jadega's whirlwind knock in quarter-finals win over Pakistan. The debacle against Sri Lanka. Vinod Kambli crying and begging to Clive Llyod. West Indies surprise win over South Africa.

1998:

The best year for Tendulkar. His back-to-back centuries.

1998 is also known for Ajit Agarkar always providing the first breakthrough. His first 50-60 wickets in ODI came pretty fast.
