In the ninth episode of our podcast series, Yorked, we revisited India’s maiden Test series triumph in Pakistan. On this day, 16 years ago, India convincingly beat their traditional rivals, Pakistan, in the third Test at Rawalpindi, recording a historic 2-1 series win, which also happened to be their first Test series win away from home in a decade.

Member of that side Aakash Chopra shared ancedotes from that series, the dressing room atmosphere, batting with Virender Sehwag during his epic 309 in Multan and more.

Network 18 Group editor (sports), Gaurav Kalra, who was working in production with the official broadcaster at that time, too reflected on many cherished memories from that tour where India emerge victorious both in the One-Day and the Test format.
