Dean Jones asked Curtly Ambrose to take off his wristband. He reacted angrily by taking 5-32 to win the first final.
This was how Curtly Ambrose saw it when recounting the story years later:
"To this day I found it strange that he asked me to take off my wristband. I was using wristbands all through my career and out of nowhere he asked the umpires to ask me to take it off."
"I think he said something about the white wristband and the white ball which was disrupting. It didn't make sense and I was reluctant to take it off but Richie told me to just get in with the game and avoid the distractions. I was mad really mad. But as I told them you should never wake a sleeping lion. It was just a oneoff situation but it was a warning to batsmen all over the world. What Dean Jones did was a bad mistake which backfired. I blew them away";.
