So Australia is now set out to match their record of not losing a single match to conquer the title as they did in 2003. Whenever the Media and Pundits write-off their ability Australia has this knack of coming back strong and silencing their critics. The five consecutive losses they suffered at the hands of England in CB Series finals and against New Zealand in Chappell-Hadlee Trophy now seem to be long forgotten.
Today’s ‘Quiztion of the Day’ relates to an incident which at that time was thought would derail Australia’s quest for defending the title in 2003. But they came back strong and won every match of that tournament. Here it is:
An Australian batsman said that he was fuelled by the anger and confusion created by a particular incident before the match. He attacked the bowling right from the word go and rescued his team after Australia was put into bat first and was in a precarious position when he came into bat. His counter-attacking innings not only let Australia post a huge total and win the match very convincingly but also won him a man of the match award. What incident, match and the batsman are being referred here?
