One of the weakest Pakistan sides to visit India in recent times pulled off a memorable victory to draw the series in Bangalore. The architect of the win was Younis Khan, who scored 267 - the highest then by a visiting batsman in India - and added 324 with Inzamam-ul-Haq (184). Virender Sehwag's double-hundred - he became the fastest Indian to reach 3000 runs during his innings - gave India some hope of holding on to the series but Danish Kaneria and Mohammad Sami triggered a collapse after Sehwag's fall. Younis got a half-century in the second innings and Pakistan managed to take all 10 wickets on the fifth day for a 168-run win.

Great memories for me personally. This was the series which got me hooked on cricket.
