March 14, 2001, is a date that will live in the minds of the Indian cricket fans forever.

Not because over a hundred thousand turned up to witness VVS Laxman's amazing knock and Rahul Dravid's valiant supporting act, or because of the way the Aussies bowled their hearts out, but because Laxman's innings was the turning point in a series where the Indians beat the Aussies on their own terms.

A year has passed since that epic knock of 281. Let's flashback to Eden Gardens, Kolkata, and relive what is possibly Indian cricket's finest moment.
