  20. 20. Who is X? Zimbabwes first ODI match in history was against a well-established Australian side, with no player having had previous experience of one-day cricket at the highest level. The 1983 World Cup match will not just be remembered for Zimbabwe's first win in an ODI. It will also be remembered for the genius of captain 'X', the man that scripted it, hitting 69 not out and then taking 4 for 42.

However, he chose not to run Jaffar out and headed back to his mark. The Pakistan government had given him an award in the form of a medal for showing this gesture.

  29. 29. Bad decisions make you pay! Unbeaten South Africa were huge favorites to beat struggling West Indies in the 1996 World Cup. But in the knockouts,South Africa had decided to leave out Allan Donald for this match to bring in the extra spinner in Paul Adams, in hindsight it proved to be an ill-advised move. West Indian Player 'X' who came at no.3, unleashed a brilliant knock of 111 to steer West Indies into the semis.
  30. 30. BC Lara
  31. 31. Unexpected exit of the favourites New Zealand's captain 'X' had to decide whether to rest in the 1992 semi-final against Pakistan or risk aggravating his injury. After New Zeland posted a formidable 262, 'X' felt comfortable to sit out during the Pakistan innings and allow his deputy, 'Y', to take over. Pakistan were 140 for 4 after 35 overs, needing 123 from the final 15. But then Z's blitzkrieg 37-ball 60 took away the match from New Zeland. Identify the Players X,Y and Z.
  32. 32. X Martin Crowe Y John Wright Z Inzamam-ul-Haq
  33. 33. No one provokes the Master! It was the 2003 World Cup and 'X', just before the match said that he worked out a way to get Sachin out cheaply. He made the mistake of provoking Sachin and spoke about him being just another batsman. He also said that perhaps the short ball might do the trick against the Indian batting line-up. The talk saw Sachin single out 'X' for special treatment including a pull shot for a spectacular six over mid-wicket and out of the stadium in Durban. For many, it remains the shot of the tournament it was violent, it was graceful, it was pure Sachin. In the same match, a brilliant bowling performance by Bowler 'Y' for India, who ended up with his career-best 23/6 saw India wrap up things convincingly.
  34. 34. X Andrew Caddick Y Ashish Nehra
  35. 35. He kept us alive with a mesmerising show against South Africa and then totally blew Pakistan apart in the final. I had the best seat in the world to watch him bowl and he was terrific Who said this ? on whom?
  36. 36. Adam Gilchrist on Shane Warne (1999 World Cup)
  37. 37. And that's why cricket is called Gentlemen's Game Captain 'X', though devasted by his team's unexpected loss to the opponents, showed a gesture of true sportsmanship. Once back in his hotel room, he asked opponent team's Player 'Y' if he could see him in his room. 'Y', not knowing what to expect, knocked on the door of 'X' with a little trepidation. To Y's surprise, X presented him with a signed bat as a token of his appreciation. Y later quoted: I'm overwhelmed. For him to do so after his team's chances in the World Cup had taken a knock shows the spirit in which X plays his cricket. We now have a number of admirers for him in our dressing room.

  60. 60. Who said this? I am feeling bad that we lost the game but I am happy that I took a hat-trick. The old ball was going to reverse and I got the wickets. I tried to get five in a row but unfortunately didn't get it.
  61. 61. Lasith Malinga (After his 4-consecutive wickets in 2007 went in vain)

It was one of the finest moments of my life. My wife told me that no less than 5,000 people celebrated outside my house in Patiala after the victory.
