<p>Top spot in our top five from Bangalore goes to Zaheer Khan who troubled Australia both with the bat and ball. He picked 6 wickets in the match but what deserves special accolades is his batting. </p> <p>The man of the match slammed an unbeaten 57 not out that allowed India to make 360 in the first innings to put what's now being called a 360 degree turn on this match.

At number two is Harbhajan Singh for his all-round show. His wicket of Mike Hussey could be one of the best dismissals of his career. The 'Turbanator' took the cake with the cherry on top. His 54 made sure that India could save the Test. (AP Photo)
Unforgettable moment number 3 from Bangalore was Sachin Tendulkar falling 15 runs short of Brian Lara's record. Sachin will want to forget it since he doesn't have a 50 in his last ten innings while Cameron White was almost in tears at the thought that his 1st Test wicket was one of the greatest of all time.

Some things never change about Indian cricket and that's intrigue. Kumble pushed himself at number 10 in the batting order. He did not take the field but nobody was willing to clarify during the Test about what the status was. As for the journalists they could do no better than to keep retirement tributes ready.

<p>This innings hurt not because Ricky Ponting improved his average of 12 in India but because he got it at the start of the series to make a strong statement. Another 'ouch' factor for India was when he thanked Greg Chappell for it.</p> <p>Ishant got his man in the second innings for a 7-wicket haul. Clearly Australia brings out the best in him.
