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.

Watching Yuvis crisp timing in Nairobi.. had seen his knocks in U19s in early 2000 but to watch this innings against McGrath and co was amazing. Gen X under Ganguly was born on that day...
