The Antigua Test, 2002, between India and the West Indies, was a peculiar one. On a dead track with absolutely nothing for the bowlers, 1142 runs were scored over the five days with just 18 wickets taken. Five individual hundreds were scored, including 136 not out in 510 balls by a certain Shivnarine Chanderpaul, and yet Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara could not go past four runs between them. And this was just the beginning of all the oddities! We bring to you some unique and rather strange things that took place in this game, which will surely appall you!
