On This Day: India Bowled Out for 81 Chasing a Victory Target of 120 against West Indies

In a dramatic scenario and what could have been a no-sweat victory for India, West Indies bowled out India for 81 in a 120-run chase in the second innings, to win the third Test series of the five-match series on March 31, 1997. India, who were in a commanding position in the second innings of the match, had the game in their hands at Barbados. But a sudden collapse left the fans and the Indian players got smacked, while West Indies did the unthinkable and hit the jackpot by winning the third Test match by 38 runs.

Coming into the third match of the series with the first two ending in thrilling draws, India won the toss and opted to bowl at the Kensington Oval at Barbados. At the time, Sachin Tendulkar was leading the Indian cricket team as captain and there were questions if his role affected his performance with the bat.
