Any India-Australia Test series is worth watching. From memories of Harbhajan Singh's hat-trick and VVS Laxman's miracle double-century in 2001 to Michael Clarke's debut in 2005 and more recent exploits, drama and talking points are always guaranteed.
Tackling some of those over the next few weeks are John Pennington and Chetan Narula. Chetan will be travelling round India covering the series for Cricket World, and in the first of a series of podcasts, the pair look ahead to what is an important series - for both sides.
