1. South Africa vs. Australia semi-finals, 1999- Lance Klusener, their man of the hour, held his wits and blasted limits to move them closer to victory.
2. South Africa vs. Australia finals, 1999 - Jacques Kallis, he showed his class by scoring a brilliant century and helping his team win the match and the series.
3. India vs. England test series, 2008 - Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he showed his mettle by coming out of retirement to lead India against England at home. He finished as the top run scorer in the series with 378 runs.
4. Australia vs. India test series, 2018 - Ashton Agar, he brought up his half-century off just 42 balls while playing his first test match. He ended up scoring a brilliant hundred and helped his team beat India 1-0.
5. Malcolm Marshall, the bowler - He holds the record for the fastest hat-trick in cricket history, doing it in just three deliveries during a Test match between Australia and New Zealand at Auckland, back in 1969.
6. Charles Bannerman, the batsman - His average of 50 is the highest by any player who has played more than 10 years in international cricket.
After more than two years of holding the championship, his initial record was ultimately beaten in January 2019, and this was then eclipsed by another record of 89.9 m established in July 2019. With 100 being a significant number in the game of cricket, Kristan aspired to be the first person to break the 100-meter barrier.
His attempt at breaking the record lasted only three seconds, but that doesn't diminish the fact that he had tried. The sport's history is filled with records that have been broken over time, so it isn't enough for someone to come close: they need to beat the record entirely. However, due to an error during filming, no one except Kristan knows exactly what happened after he released the ball. Some say he reached out to grab it, others claim he didn't move at all. What is known is that he did not touch the ground with any part of his body and that he didn't return the ball into play. Thus he has qualified as a human cannonball without landing in a legal baseball stadium or arena.
The record will be eligible again in 2029 when it can be reassessed following further improvements to camera technology.
Kristan's family owns a small farm near Mysore in southern India, where he was born on February 21st, 1989. He moved to Australia with his parents when he was eight years old and grew up there.
The best one-day match in history, and probably the greatest cricket game ever played. The 100 overs of Australia's World Cup semi-final against South Africa at Edgbaston featured almost everything. There were nine separate spells of bowling, two of them by Donald. There were three separate innings of fifties, one of them by Smith. There were four sixes hit in the course of this match alone.
Australia won by seven runs. This was a match that had it all: drama, excitement, courage, skill and luck. It is hard to imagine a more perfect game.
Australia beat South Africa by seven runs at the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
The best one-day international match ever played was between Australia and South Africa at the Adelaide Oval, December 2003. It was a famous contest between two of cricket's great teams of the day - Australia led by Justin Langer and including Glenn McGrath, Warne, Lee, Ambrose; South Africa with Makhaya Ntini, Shaun Pollock, Allan Donald.
The West Indies were competing in their first World Cup final. Shikhar Dhawan was awarded player of the tournament and the highest run-scorer, while Enamul Haque of Bangladesh took the most wickets. In the group stages, West Indies had two wins and one loss - they finished first in the group. The winning streak continued into the knockout stage where they defeated India by seven runs in the semi-finals and then England by two tests to one day matches in the finals.
Shikhar Dhawan played all his matches as opening bat and scored 472 runs with an average of 50.50. His top score of 150 not out came against Australia at Guyana. This is the only century he has scored in the World Cup so far. He also got three five-wicket hauls and completed one ten-wicket haul. He was named in the ICC's team of the year in both ODIs and T20Is.
Enamul Haque is a Bangladeshi cricketer who plays for the Bangladesh national cricket team. He is the current captain of the team. He debuted in 2001 and until 2003, he played only test matches but after 2004 World Cup, he was included in the ODI squad too. During that time, he didn't play any match because of injury but in 2007, he returned to the team after recovering from injury.
Sidhu was India's top performance in the subsequent ODI series, making 287 runs at 57.40. He hit two match-winning innings: a 76 in Chandigarh and an unbeaten 134 in Gwalior. For both efforts, he was named man of the match. The second innings began after India had lost two wickets with only four runs on the board.
Sidhu also took five wickets in the series, conceding just over 20 runs per over. He became the first player to score 1000 runs and take 5 wickets in an ODI series against Australia.
India next played New Zealand from November 26, 2016. This is the final ODI series between these two teams.
