1999 Semifinal: A Moment of Madness

Australia and South Africa wrote one of the most astonishing chapters in the history of the World Cup.

Big hitting allrounder Lance Klusener got South Africa to within 1 run of a win with 4 balls remaining. Inexplicably he ran for glory whilst last man Allan Donald stood rooted at the other end before belatedly setting off. The run out resulted in a tied match. It was the match that had everything and is widely regarded as the best one day international ever played.

Semi Final Edgbaston 17 June 1999.
