In this quiz, you have to name both XIs from the 1986 Madras Test match, the second (and last, until September 22, 2022) tied Test. You have four minutes.

Between September 18 and 22, 1986, India and Australia played the second tied Test match in history. Australia declared on 574-7 and reduced India to 245-7, but the lower order took India to 397. Australia declared a second time, on 170-5, setting India 348 in exactly a day’s cricket. India lost their last wicket on 347 with a ball to spare.

Can you name both XIs from that match in four minutes?
