  3rd Test match (18 Mar - 22 Mar)

Final Frontier-III

MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai was the venue for the third Test match (It was here that the most memorable Tied Test was played between India and Australia in 1986). After pulling off a thrilling victory in a remarkable turnaround at the Eden Gardens , India made sure that the Aussies had to climb a mountain to fulfil their goal of conquering the "Final Frontier". The pressure was put right back on the Aussies. If the 'city of joy' Kolkata is a sport loving city, Chennai is crazy about cricket! Indians were brimming with confidence going into the match and the Aussies had a few in their camp who couldn't stand Harbhajan's 'Spin Magic'. With the series levelled at 1-1, the onus was on the Aussies to concentrate on their personal goal... "Final Frontier".
