1. Titan Cup, 1996 

It was the 3rd League match of the Titan Cup in Bangalore in 1996, where India and Australia were set to meet for a showdown. Australia had won the toss and opted to bat first, but could only manage a substandard target of 216 for India to chase. India got off to quite a rough start and was 47 for 4 at a time. However, Sachin Tendulkar’s fiery innings of 88 provided India with a huge boost. But again, India’s chances of winning appeared weak when Tendulkar got out. India was 169-8, but a drastic turn of events saw Anil Kumble and Javagal Srinath go out all guns blazing, guiding India to a remarkable victory.
