Obscure and random cricket matches you remember.

Recommended Posts

There was this game vs SL, on a hot April Saturday, that I saw at the Wankhede, where Dhoni hit a 6 to win us the game. It was probably the only thing I remember in that otherwise dull game. People went berserk for a few days after that 6. 

Dont know what the fuss was all about :dontknow:

Never again, am I going to see an ODI in its entirety. Even on a TV, let alone in the stadium.

ODI match between WI and Aus wherein Steven Waugh and bevan had the wonderful partnership to win the match. They did not hit many fours and sixers but still they chased at more than run a ball and won. Their running between wickets and strike rotation was amazing.

 

Sohail Khan picking 5 fer against us in ODI WC. Debut match and he just ran through the batting lineup.

 

Similarly other debutant. Franklyn Rose took a 5 for something on test debut on our tour to WI.

 

Vinod Kambli crying on-field against Sri Lanka.

 

Solkar taking a brilliant catch of Lloyd in 1974 test series in India. Probably that superb catch was the only way we could have got Lloyd looked well set for a 200.

 

Glenn Turners 100 which knocked our chances of progressing to WC knockouts.

 

Collission between Lloyd and Sobers which helped India get run-out .

 

Paul Valthaty scoring a IPL ton. Came from nowhere. Totally unexpected by anyone.

Remember watching that on the streets,I think they won off a scrambled single .

Yes, ODIs were awesome and even better to watch than tests till mid 2000s. And I'm not even being nostalgic.

2009 CT semis I think where Ponting scored a ton vs England. That was the best Ponting innings I have ever seen aesthetic wise, classiest shots galore.

Anyone remembers the Titan Cup 1996 Tri Series involving India,  Australia and SA shortly held after the 1996 WC. 

 

In one of the India - Australia matches held in Bangalore,   India needed around 40-50 runs with just 2 wickets in hand and Kumble- Sri Nath took India to victory with their Mothers sitting and cheering in the stands. 

 

In one of the other India - Australia match held in the same tournament which was a virtual semi Final,  India put up a good score and Australia put up a fight till the 49th over where 6 runs were needed off 6 balls with only one wicket remaining. Tendulkar bowler the last over and a mix up happened at the first ball of the over and India qualified for the Finals against Sa,  which India won thanks to heroics from Ajay Jadeja.

One of the most enjoyable ODI tri-series I remember watching. RSA looked unbeatable up until the final. Bloody Rakesh Maria ruined it for me a few years later when he said the final was "totally fixed" :((.

another painful final

Remember this was a Tri-Series involving Zimbabwe if it am not wrong. It also reminds us how difficult was it for us to defeat even teams like West Indies and NZ in those days. 

 

Sodhi, Dighe and Mohanty LOL,  Chris Gayle has been around forever played along with these guys and still playing.

yes , 3rd team was zimbabwe

NZ was a good side in those days specially with an x-factor like bond 

It wasnt difficult ...we use to make a mess of finals. In this series we were winning every game easily...our batsman specially sachin was in top form .

it was collymore who got us in the final

Then there was this 2001 home series vs WI when it was 3-3 and jermaine lawson destroyed us in decided

 

Ganguly was not a good captain for finals, he infact made a joke in his last year during a domestic competition where they again lost in final . I think he told manoj tiwary to take up the leadership saying they wont win final under ganguly
