Riding on Jack Russell’s century and Graham Thorpe’s 89, England reached the fighting total following a top-order collapse. Venkatesh Prasad was the star of the show for the visitors as he scalped a five-wicket haul in the first essay.

India too lost quick wickets in their first innings but a masterful century from Ganguly and an equally brilliant 95 from Dravid ensured the visitors reached 429 before getting dismissed. Chris Lewis and Allan Mullally scalped three wickets each for the hosts.

India couldn’t dismiss England in their second innings and despite taking a healthy first-innings lead, they had to settle for a draw.

Ganguly became the 10th India cricketer to score a century on debut with Lala Amarnath being the first to achieve this illustrious feat in 1933. He too pulled off the milestone against England in Mumbai.
