India vs Australia: Matt Renshaw’s ability to handle spin will be key to visitors’ chances in Test series

Indian cricket fans of certain age would all claim that they watched the epic Test series of 2001; that they were all either at the Eden Gardens or at the Chepauk Stadium, or glued to the television. It was a comeback for the ages by India against the all-conquering Australians under the tough-as-nails Steve Waugh. Amongst those Aussies was a burly left-handed opening batsman with a weathered visage from Queensland that swept his way back in to the side.
