A 3 test series in early 1998, was the first full Test series between the India and Australia for 6 years, and the first Australian test series in India since 1986. Shane Warne was fit and touring so the series had the secondary makings of a heavyweight title fight- Sachin v Warne.
However there was another great story that didn’t steal any headlines from the main event. Gavin Robertson was a journeyman off spinner who’s played some one day internationals 4 years prior, plucked from the wilderness to be Warne’s spin foil on this much anticipated tour.
Gavin Robertson joins us to talk about his unlikely journey to be a running mate in the showdown of cricket’s biggest superstars, the first awakenings by Australian cricketers to the possibilities of India and the start of a rivalry that would capture the public imagination.
