It's been a riveting Test match to say the least, as 2021 turns into the year of the underdogs - first a rookie India at the Gabba, and now this. And it's clearer than ever, that Test cricket reaches a part of the soul untouched by greed - that every tour is remembered by its Tests. No one remembers that the West Indies were battered in the ODIs. That they've gone 1-0 up after five gruelling days of Test cricket and an exceptional double-hundred by a debutant in the fourth innings to pull off the highest run-chase in Asia will be remembered for generations to come.
