Unless you are living under a rock, you might have known that ICC World T20 is just around the corner. So we at wirally decided to bring to you some incredible moments of Indian Cricket through the ages In World Cups ( ODI and T20 Included ). And there cannot be a better batsman to start off the proceedings than the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
Edition : ICC World Cup 2003
When they say matches are made in heaven, they meant ODI matches like these. India Vs Pakistan have always had contests which defied every expectations and made superstars of the players involved. And so it ensued on March 1st 2003, as Pakistan courtesy a composed innings from Saaed Anwar scoring a century, put up 273 for 7. But the fully packed Centurion Stadium in South Africa, had yet to see a knock which would create history. As was fated, the innings came through the lofty cover drives, and improvised pull shots of the little master. Eventually and unfortunately, his wicket was lost at a heart breaking score of 98 ( of 75 balls ) but only after he ensured that the game was in the bag.
‘The game against Pakistan was the biggest of my life. The buzz over this match had started in 2002….I remember a few innings and important among them is the innings against Pakistan in the 2003 World Cup.’
Sachin Tendulkar, quoted later in 2009
