Shankar,

Absolutely amazing is'nt it? If it was an India Pak match, there would have been rumours of "match fixing" floating around!!

Hi Prasanth,

My earlier favourite was South Africa-New Zealand in the 1997-98 Carlson & United series match at Brisbane, Australia.

South Africa closed 50 overs at 300. New Zealand had the most disastrous start with 124/6 in 24 overs. Then came Cairns and Parore. Nash and Vettori continued the charge. It came down to 2 balls - 7 runs to win.

Nash hit the ball and it landed right on the rope. Cricket rules ... anything outside the boundary is six .. so this was a four.

Last ball - 3 runs. Nash again hits. Klusener dives at the boundary to complete a catch and SAf won by 2 runs.

It was a classic !!!!
