It was the fifth game of the Super Sixes stage in the 2003 ODI World Cup. After New Zealand sent the defending champions Australia to bat first, their right-arm fast bowler Shane Bond was furious with the ball in hand. While the Aussie batsmen didn’t find any clue to handle him, Bond managed the bowling figures of 10-2-23-6.

Bond’s bowling performance helped the Kiwi side to restrict the Australian team to 208/9 (50 overs) in the first innings. However, the New Zealand team failed to chase that target as they were bundled out for just 112 runs (30.1 overs), thanks to the Australian fast-bowler Brett Lee’s incredible fifer (9.1-2-42-5).
