1999: The World Cup that was dropped

In the latest 81allout podcast we look back at the World Cup in 1999 when Australia came back from the dead to win the tournament.

We talk (a lot) about the most dramatic ODI match of all time, India’s meltdown in the chase against Zimbabwe, Steve Waugh’s brilliant century, the thrill of watching Shoaib Akhtar from the ground level, Warnie rising to the occasion just in time, Venkatesh Prasad’s 5 wicket haul against Pakistan, Pakistan’s pinch-blocking strategy, Dravid’s glorious run, and Zulu.

Also included: Mark Waugh’s serenity on the field, parochial plaint on Venkatraghavan missing out on the final, and Imran’s wisdom.
