So what to do? Well, the Cricket World Cup is on in Australia at the moment, and cricket has hundreds. So perhaps it’s a bit of a lame way to mark the 100th post, but here are my top five most memorable Australian Cricket World Cup moments:
Pakistan take four cheap wickets against Australia in their opening match in 2003, and then Andrew Symonds rescues the Aussies by blasting his first one day century. The Australians would not lose a game.
Ricky Ponting smashes 140 not out in the 2003 World Cup Final against India.
Adam Gilchrist smashes 147 in the 2007 World Cup Final against Sri Lanka. I was gutted when Australia lost the 1996 final to Arjuna Ranatunga’s Sri Lankan team. Ranatunga had long gone by 2007, but it was good to celebrate Australia’s third World Cup in a row by getting revenge on the Lankans.
Australia looked headed for a defeat in the 1999 World Cup Semi-Final against South Africa until Shane Warne bowled this delivery.
And then there is this memorable finish to the greatest cricket match ever played.
Greatest cricket moment ever!
