8. India’s first Test series win against West Indies
One of the most epic moments of Indian cricket came at the Port of Spain in 1971 when India secured a famous Test series victory over West Indies in their own backyard. It was India’s first Test series triumph over West Indies and is regarded as one of the major turning points in the folklore of Indian cricket. The win was extraordinarily special as it came against a strong West Indies side who was dominating the world of cricket at that point of time. It was also the debut series of Sunil Gavaskar who made a immediate impact with the willow in hand and hammered 774 runs in 4 Tests. India won the 5-match Test series by 1-0.
