Cricket: Trivia


Q: When was the last time India won a One Day International tournament?
A: Way back in July 2002 when India won the NatWest Series final defeating England by 2 wickets at Lord's, London. That was Mohammad Kaif's match and his 6th wicket century partnership with Yuvraj changed the game in India's favour from a losing position of 146-5 chasing 326 to win in 50 overs.

It was a memorable match, made even more unforgettable by news channels repeatedly showing captain Saurav Ganguly's T-shirt waving emotions from the dressing room balcony of Lord's, months after the match was over. Read more on that match.

India plays New Zealand tomorrow in the Videocon Triangular Series Final at Harare in Zimbabwe.

Will this final break India's losing jinx or will it be yet another, the 11th if I'm not mistaken, instance of losing in the finals after that famous win in 2002? Follow the match on Cricinfo and watch it Live on ESPN from 12:45 p.m. IST on Tue., Sept. 06, 2005.
