India has won in a super way the 1st test between India and England at Chennai in the day 5. Very surprisingly, India became able to chase a huge target of 387 in the fourth innings which is 4th highest in world.

11 Dec day 1 - England 1st innings 229/5 (A Flintoff 18*JM Anderson 2*90 ov)
12 Dec day 2 - India 1st innings 155/6 (MS Dhoni 24*Harbhajan Singh 13*45 ov)

15 Dec day 5 - India 2nd innings 387/4 (98.3 ov) - end of match

Day 5 highlights:

India were 131/1 after the end of day 4. Then soon after the 5th day started, India lost Dravid for just 4 runs.Then came Sachin Tendulkar who proved to be the match winner for the team. He made a superb century to guide India to a very famous win and the partnership with Yuvraj Singh who made 85 was superb.

In fact, the openers and particularly the inning of Virender Sehwag provided the required base to the win. India's win is now dependent on opening partnership.
