‘You’ve just dropped the World Cup’ – Australia v South

Klusener ran… he just ran. There was no run there. He just ran. Allan Donald stayed at the crease

It was the perfect punchline to a great story, one which you most likely know already. Headingley, 1999, the final match of the Super Six stage of the World Cup. Australia need to beat South Africa to make the semi-finals.

Fleming bowled a Yorker. It went to mid-off this time, to Mark Waugh. Klusener ran… he just ran. There was no run there. He just ran. Allan Donald stayed at the crease, and all Damien Fleming had to do was roll the ball along the pitch to Adam Gilchrist for the win… or draw (depending on how you looked at it).
