    As we reach the 20th anniversary of the 3rd test in Chennai of that famous 2001 series, its time to wrap up our Final Frontier series.  Our thoughts on the factors behind the slow-build of the Australia v India rivalry, the way that 2001 series entered the public consciousness, and the legacy of the series that continues today.

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Mike Coward

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Mike Coward

    For many years, the rare Australian cricket tours to India went barely noticed by Australian cricket fans.  Scoreboards and match reports were the most that could be consumed. This mixed with the supposed horror stories that filtered back after the fact from players about  accommodation, food and illness resulted in the perception of an outpost - something that was not as worthy as the iconic and growing rivalries elsewhere.

    However, legendary cricket writer Mike Coward begged to differ. He embraced India like no other Australian in the cricket fraternity through the 70s and 80s. He saw the nation for its cricket passion, and 30 years ago was moved to wrote the  seminal book ‘Cricket beyond the bazaar’ that put a spotlight on the untold stories of Australia’s battles on the subcontinent, and  foretold the rise of Indian cricket well before Australia and the rest of the world cottoned on. 

    As we reach the finale of The Greatest Season That Was Presents: Final Frontier, Mike Coward joins us to give the historical backdrop to todays’ great rivalry, and the reasons why it took so long for Australians to appreciate Indian cricket.

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Colin Miller

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Colin Miller

    The amazing turnaround at Kolkata not only had a nation rejoicing, it cemented the India and Australia rivalry forever.

    This series was now set for a grand finale in Chennai, a test that truly proved to be the icing on the cake of this magnificent series.

    The man nicknamed after Tone Loc’s hit Funky Cold Medina,  Colin “Funky” Miller was a maverick journeyman in domestic cricket.  But his mid-30s experiment with bowling off spin as a side hustle to his medium pace, resulted in an international career and cult hero status – whether it be with blonde, pink or blue hair.  

    Colin Miller joins The Greatest Season That Was Presents - The Final Frontier to talk about his journey to international cricket, and the starring role he played in the frantic finale of one of the greatest test series ever.

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Michael Kasprowicz

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Michael Kasprowicz

    With 16 straight wins in the bank, Australia had the chance to conquer Steve Waugh Final Frontier when they arrived in Kolkata for the 2nd test of 2001.

    India had been stung by the first test result but by midpoint Australia looked to be realising that dream.

    Michael Kasprowicz’s performances on the 1998 tour had seen him labelled the India specialist, and he came into that winning side that was aiming to make history.

    History, however, turned sharply in Kolkata. Michael Kasprowicz joins The Greatest Season That Was Presents - Final Frontier  to tell us about being in the middle on the days that created folklore in Indian cricket, and forever changed the India and Australia rivalry - but also the redemption that was eventually to follow.

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Adam Gilchrist

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Adam Gilchrist

    The 1999-2000 season had seen a more ruthless Australia sweep India 3-0,  a group of fresh stars were added to Steve Waugh’s veterans and the team  had seamlessly gone from arguably the best in the world to a whole new, higher plane.

    Adam Gilchrist was symbolic of this shift, His impact was immediate and within 12 months he was the national vice captain. 

    As they flew to India in 2001, the tour was personally and collectively termed the ‘final frontier’ by Steve Waugh – the first test tour he’d been on in 1986 on remained the place he and Australia hadn’t won since .

    By that stage Gilchrist had played in 14 tests for 14 wins, but as he lined up for the first test in Mumbai he couldn’t have imagined the rollercoaster series that lay ahead both personally and from a team perspective.

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Damien Fleming

    NEW SERIES: The Final Frontier - Damien Fleming

    1998 had been a rude shock for Australia, but when India returned to Australian in 1999-2000 for the first time in 8 years, there was a similar shock to their system.

    That new captain Steve Waugh and the new coach John Buchanan had a vision for excellence to motivate the next era Taylor and Healy had just retired, but  the team was about to welcome Adam Gilchrist and Brett Lee into the fold, while others like Justin Langer could finally lock in a long-term spot. 

    The challenge was set by Buchanan, and it was Damien Fleming in career-best form that said the team should be aiming to win all six tests of the home summer, a unlikely aim at the time. This was a team that wanted to tick off every challenge ahead of them – a return bout to India in the back of Waugh’s mind.  

    Damien  Fleming joins us to chat about 1999 -2000 and the next chapter of TGSTW presents - The Final Frontier.
