Madras Magic: The Tied Test of 86,

’ 5pm, ABC For cricket trag­ics, for whom even the al­most con­stant bom­bard­ment of the gen­tle­man’ s

game can never be enough, here’ s

a blast from the past, a story from the vaults, of pride, pas­sion and courage. Ap­par­ently one of the great­est Test matches of all time.

But are th­ese abil­i­ties just for sur­vival or is there more to their elec­tri­fy­ing dis­plays?
