10 Matches in International Cricket History 

Australia vs. West Indies - 1975 The first Cricket World Cup final is always remembered, but West Indies and Australia played one of the finest matches in tournament history.

 

 The Lord's stadium served as the stage, and the sweltering June temperature caused crowds to rush out onto the outfield with each run scored.

 

 Clive Lloyd produced a model captain's innings, leading his team from 50 for three into the lead with a merciless century shared with Rohan Kanhai in a 149-run fourth-wicket stand.

 

 Despite a valiant run chase led by Ian Chappell's 62, Australia fell 17 runs short of the 291-run mark, beaten by Viv Richards' outstanding fielding, which included three consecutive runouts.

. Australia vs. South Africa – 1999 With one over left, there were nine runs to score.

 

 South Africa appeared to be one easy equation away from the Cricket World Cup final, but what transpired was a drama and an art form of uncertainty that caused them to miss their first-ever final.

 

 After being restrained by Shaun Pollock's five for 36, Australia reached 213, and Jonty Rhodes and Jacques Kallis combined to leave their nation needing one run to win with one wicket remaining.

 

 Allan Donald didn't hear Lance Klusener's request for a quick single when he bunted to mid-off, Adam Gilchrist snapped off the bails, and the Australians wheeled away.

 

 New Zealand vs. South Africa – 2015 Where else than Eden Park could New Zealand have had its World Cup day, a semi-final that lasted nearly 100 overs and saw the hosts triumph?

 

 With Faf du Plessis and AB De Villiers dragging his team to 281 from 43 overs, South Africa again sought their maiden participation in a showpiece and had their foot firmly in the throat of the home team for the majority of the match.

 

 Brendon McCullum's bat, along with the whole might of a nation, met the Proteas in the run-chase as the skipper smashed 56 at an excellent strike rate of 226.

 

 Grant Elliott had to play the innings of his life to equal the strain of requiring five runs from two balls. He did this by lifting Dale Steyn for six over mid-on, which sparked wild celebrations.

 England vs. India – 2011 The match between India and England in 2011 proved that a game doesn't necessarily need a winner to be a timeless classic.

 

 The pressure on India ahead of a World Cup campaign on home soil was unmatched in cricket, and the team's opening-night victory over Bangladesh eased tensions.

 

 In addition, Sachin Tendulkar, at his most spectacular, stroked his way to 120 and established a towering 339.

 

 Although he was not a batsman whose style is reminiscent of short-form fireworks, Andrew Strauss scored 158, with Graham Swann and Ajmal Shahzad guiding their team to a thrilling stalemate.

 India vs. Zimbabwe – 1983 A team cruising to victory has superb quality, but nothing warms cricket fans' hearts like a stirring comeback from batting obscurity.

 

 India dropped to 17 for five in a top-order totter to tie all others, and it appeared their opening-game victory over the defending champion West Indies might be for nothing.

 

 Captain Kapil Dev hit 175 off 138 balls, taking his team to 266 and giving Zimbabwe a challenging run chase.

 

 A spectacular victory was achieved thanks to the ball-turning of Madan Lal and Dev, and it catalyzed the campaign that led to India winning the World Cup at Lord's a fortnight later.

 

 India vs. Australia – 1987 The 

 

Cricket World Cup

 

 will not be held in the familiar English countryside for the first time since the tournament's establishment. Therefore India needed to win the opening match with a sensational performance.

 

 However, none of the hundreds who crowded into the Madras stadium could have predicted how similar the two countries would be.

 

 Geoff Marsh's 110 and Australia's dominant performance at the plate forced India to chase down 270 from their 50 overs, quieting the home crowd.

 

 Whenever an Indian wicket was lost, a strong partnership would quickly form in a gripping push-pull match, but Navjot Sidhu and Krishnamachari Srikkanth's valiant efforts would come up short by one run.

 

 India vs. Pakistan – 2003 Saeed Anwar was the first, recording 273 for seven from 50 overs while flicking and forcing his way to a century to keep his team in the game.

 

 Tendulkar led his team to victory with one of his best one-day innings, again playing at the top of his game.

 

 However, many people will recall the match for Shoaib Akhtar's incredibly hostile bowling, which resulted in Tendulkar's dismissal with an absolute snorter that dealt a blow to Pakistan.
