Indian Cricket Victories - 1971

India has beaten Australia and England in test series to end 2008. This brings back the memories of 1971 series wins in Caribbean and England. Ajit Wadekar - a Mumbai native was the captain of the team and Sunil Gavaskar has begun his career with 774 runs in four innings (a double century and three other centuries). Dilip sardesai was also a huge contributor with 642 runs in the series. India won the series 1-0.

India also beat England 1-0 after playing three tests. 

Indian Postal Service had issued this stamp to celebrate this feat.
