I remember Ashok Mankad's hit wicket case. Mankad was batting well at that time and was into his 40s.

Yes, I remember it too.
That was a disaster of a series.
44 years on, I still have that chip about England on my shoulder. :grin:
The humiliating defeat at home in 1976-77 doesn't help either to remove it. :grin:
How I hated both these series!

I remember Amarnath handle the ball case, until then I don’t know that rule of batsmen not to touch the ball with hand, but ok with a bat.

The funniest one I found in this was with that player who was on a flight and did not reach the ground in time for the match.

What a way to be given out! :-)
