A summer evening drenched in sunlight at the Wankhede stadium, 4th day of a test match. Plenty of bounce and turn and a wearing 4th day pitch. Mcgrath and Warne bowling to a field of Ian Healy (wicket keeper), Mark Taylor (1st slip), Mark Waugh (2nd slip), Ricky Ponting (gully for pacer, silly point for the spinner) Michael Clarke (point), Andrew Symonds (extra cover), Brendon Mccullum (mid off; why not, it’s only a dream). SRT and VVS Laxman (or BC Lara?) at the absolute pitch of their powers against Mcgrath and Warne. One has to be at the ground to observe this kind of ground fielding.
