A Fitting Reply

India's score of 318-0 (at the point of uploading) in the ongoing Lahore Test after Pakistan amassed 679-7 declared is the fourth instance of a strong reply by the team after being thrashed for over 600 runs by its opponent.

* vs England ( 653-4 decl ) at Lord's, 1990: India won the toss and strangely elected to field on a perfect batting track. England expressed their gratitude with a total of 653-4 declared. India replied well, with opener Ravi Shastri (100) and skipper Mohammad Azharuddin (121) making vital contributions. India were 430-9 and 24 short of avoiding the follow-on, when Kapil Dev hit Eddie Hemmings for four consecutive sixes to ensure that England batted again. Kapil remained unbeaten on 77. The Indian batting collapsed in the second innings to lose the Test by 247 runs .

* vs West Indies ( 631 ) at Delhi , 1948-49 : India were up against a West Indian score of 631. The hosts responded brilliantly, with three of the top four batsmen - Khan Mohammed Ibrahim (85), Rusi Modi (63) and captain Lala Amarnath (62) scoring fifties. Hemu Adhikari then played a magnificent unbeaten innings of 114. It was his only ton in Test cricket. However, the Indians failed to reduce the run-deficit to less than 150, and were asked to follow-on as per the then rules. India made 220-6 in the second innings and saved the match .

* vs West Indies (604 -6 decl) at Mumbai , 1974-75: The first-ever Test to be played at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium saw the visitors posting a mammoth 604-6 declared .India, going in 35 minutes before lunch on the third day, batted into the fifth day and replied with 406, their highest score of the series and one which enabled them to save the follow-on. Eknath Solkar scored a dogged but crucial 102, his only Test century. Sunil Gavaskar scored a delightful 86, playing superb shots against Andy Roberts. His brother-in-law Gundappa Viswanath batted like a master for 95 and Anshuman Gaekwad scored a half - century. However, India lost the six - day Test by 201 runs.
