Mankad gets India off the markIndia v England, Madras, 1952India had played 24 Tests before February 1952, drawing 12 of them and losing the rest. The first win arrived at Chepauk, in Indias 20th year as a Test side, and it came courtesy Vinoo Mankad, whose 8 for 55 in Englands first innings had, according to Wisden, seldom been bettered in Test cricket when it is considered that the pitch gave him little assistance. Five months previously, at Lords, Mankad had scored 72 and 184 and taken five wickets, only for India to lose by eight wickets.This performance, though, would not go in vain, as India took a first-innings lead of 191 courtesy centuries from Pankaj Roy and Polly Umrigar, and 61 from Dattu Phadkar. They did not have to bat again, as Mankad and Ghulam Ahmed bowled India to a win by an innings and 8 runs, and gave England a taste of the trials by spin they would go on to endure on future tours of the country.By Karthik KrishnaswamyPataudis men break overseas duckNew Zealand v India, Dunedin, 1968Of all the Test grounds in all the towns in all the world, the southern-most Test venue, in a place cricketers consider the coldest, Dunedins Carisbrook, was to warm Indian crickets hearts because it had taken their team 36 years and 43 attempts to bring up its first overseas Test victory.After a rough tour of Australia, MAK Pataudis Indians found the pitches slower and friendlier and the opposition gentler. On their first tour to New Zealand, India were a team packed with versatile allrounders and led by an imaginative and ambitious captain.They took a narrow first-innings lead courtesy half-centuries from Ajit Wadekar -- he would make another in the second innings -- and Farokh Engineer, and a tenth-wicket partnership of 57 between Bishan Bedi and Ramakant Desai. New Zealand lent them a helping hand by dropping eight catches.In what turned into a second-innings shootout on a soft, wearing pitch, Indias spinners came into their own, Erapalli Prasanna leading the way with 6 for 94 in 40 overs. India needed 200 to win and Chandu Borde and ML Jaisimha took them home just after lunch on the final day. India went on to win the series 3-1, with Prasanna taking 24 wickets at 18.79. Three years later came the heady summer of 1971, but for generations to follow, Dunedin 1968 was the first sighting of Indian crickets holy grail.By Sharda UgraSunny days in TrinidadWest Indies v India, Port of Spain, 1971There was little expectation from the India side that travelled to the Caribbean in 1971, until Dilip Sardesai made a double-century in the first Test at Kingston. At 31, many believed his career was dead, that he was lucky to have even been picked, only for him to play the innings of his life. In the same way, India werent given a chance against West Indies, and they ended up winning the series 1-0. No wonder Sardesai was called the Renaissance Man. Along the way, Indian cricket gained a new batting mainstay, Sunil Gavaskar. He made his debut in the second Test, in Port-of-Spain, and played a key role in Indias seven-wicket win with half-centuries in both innings.It was the spinners, though, who started it all -- Bishan Bedi, Erapalli Prasanna and S Venkataraghavan toppling West Indies for 214 after they had chosen to bat first. Sardesai helped himself to a hundred and later said, I was scoring runs at will. I had figured out how to get on top of their bowling. A time comes when you feel nobody can get you out, and I had that feeling all through that Caribbean tour. India gained a lead of 138. Venkat worked his way through West Indies line-up in the second innings to pick up 5 for 95, while Salim Durani chipped in with the crucial wickets of Garfield Sobers and Clive Lloyd. Indias target was 124 -- eminently gettable, especially with Gavaskar at the helm. He would go on to score 774 runs in the series, still a record for a debutant.By Alagappan MuthuChandra works his magicEngland v India, The Oval, 1971Having just beaten West Indies on their turf, Ajit Wadekars upbeat bunch arrived in the UK. The first two Tests were drawn, and England, who had just won the Ashes 2-0 in Australia, took a 71-run first-innings lead at the Oval. They were unofficially the worlds best team at that point, but India had in their ranks the unorthodox skills of Bhagwath Chandrasekhar. Brought on early, Chandras whirring legbreaks and googlies had England three down for 24. With the steady S Venkataraghavan keeping the pressure on at the other end, and a predatory close-in cordon surrounding them, England had nowhere to hide. Chandra ripped through with figures of 6 for 38, and England were bowled out for 101. India needed 173 to complete their first win on English soil, and got there slowly -- taking 101 overs to do so -- but surely, with Wadekar and Dilip Sardesai rebuilding after the early loss of both openers, and Gundappa Viswanath and Farokh Engineer steering them towards the finish.As Abid Ali struck the winning boundary and ecstatic crowds poured into the ground, the man who had led India to their triumphs here and in the West Indies was fast asleep. I went to sleep when I came back to the dressing room after being dismissed, Wadekar said. I was nudged awake by Ken Barrington, the England manager, who told me that we had won. I said to him that I always knew wed win.By Gaurav Kalra Austin Riley Jersey . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles.

American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. MILAN -- Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura has asked league officials to start the Serie A season earlier next year to ensure the Azzurri are better prepared for their key World Cup qualifier against Spain.Spain tops Group G, above Italy on goal difference after four games. The two drew 1-1 in October in Turin and the return match is scheduled for Sept. 2. Only group winners qualify directly for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.This years Serie A campaign began Aug. 20.Were a bit set in our ways, but everyone else starts August 13, Ventura said. Its in the national interest to play on level terms. Ive already asked to play at least two more league matches. In a moment of madness I asked for three, but they told me to check myself into hospital.Italy lost an international friendly 3-1 to France in Venturas first match in charge in September, just two matches into the league season.This year we had very little Serie A beffore playing France and we paid the price, Ventura added.dddddddddddd I hadnt even talked to any players until 48 hours before the match ...We lost 3-1 and it was labeled a disaster because thats the culture that we have here.Ventura, who was speaking at a press conference in Milan ahead of Tuesdays friendly against Germany, says league officials are mulling it over.I know it will be difficult, said the former Torino coach. But you have to change things by 360 degrees or youll go forward in dribs and drabs. In order to achieve great things you have to create the prerequisites.The league campaign in France and England started on Aug. 13 this year, while the Spanish season got underway the following week, on the same day as the Italian one.The German Bundesliga started a week after that.
