Throwback Thursday relives the last time the nations squared off in a World Cup match on this side of the world, a last-over thriller at the Gabba in 1992 that the hosts won by one run.
Australia batted first and reached 9/237 thanks to Dean Jones’ superb 90 and a handy 43 from David Boon, who also filled in as wicketkeeper for the match.
India was charging towards victory, but a sensational run out by Allan Border of opposing skipper Mohammad Azharuddin for 93 swung the momentum. It was the first of four run outs in last eight overs and – despite a sizzling 47 from 42 by Sanjay Manjrekar – India finished one run short after a nerve-jangling final over by Tom Moody.
Javagal Srinath whacked the final delivery out towards the boundary but No.11 Venkatapathy Raju was run out coming back for a third run that would have tied the match.
