The Border-Gavaskar trophy

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy was not always named that way. It first started out as a Test series between India and Australia between the years 1947 to 1996. The competition however, got renamed to the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in the year 1996 in order to celebrate the record-breaking achievements of two cricket legends- Australian cricketer Allan Border and Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar.
