Haha. What's the context? That is, what game was this? Where was it being played and when?
Pratik, I dont know anything about the match.. stumbled upon it while browsing of cricket videos.. the bowler is the West Indian Phil Simmons.. should be the early 90s.
This is Australia's retaliation for Dean Jones being wrongly given run out even though he was merely walking off after being bowled off a no ball (he didn't hear the no ball call). Read Cricinfo's All Today's Yesterdays dt. 27 MarchSteve Waugh wrote about it in his autobiography. Essentially Australia (and Border in particular) were pissed off that West Indies appealed for the run out (given he wasn't taking a run) and when Simmons bowled this half tracker which bounced on the pitch and landed outside it, although normally in the spirit of the game batsmen would just let it pass and the umpire would call it a wide, AB chose to spank it through mid-wicket for four.
Thanks for the info.. Jagadish..
Gr8 Shot !!! :P
