There’s nothing more enraging than seeing a cricketer from your own nation getting sledged, and there’s nothing more fulfilling than seeing them deliver retribution in that general area, right at that point.
Indian Cricket is loaded up with such models. Here are some of them:
1 Yuvraj Singh hitting 6 sixes to create history after a fight with Andrew Flintoff.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh revealed what Andrew Flintoff told him which triggered a heated argument between the two, leading Yuvraj to slam six sixes in Stuart Broad’s over. Yuvraj Singh’s ‘six–sixes-in-an-over‘ moment during the 2007 T20 World Cup against England is historic for Indian cricket.
2. Venkatesh Prasad ‘showing the way’ to Aamir Sohail in the 1996 World Cup quarterfinal.
India Vs Pakistan matches are continually energizing, yet this one was something different. This one was transformed into an exemplary by Venkatesh Prasad.
Pakistan was in a truly decent position when opener Aamir Sohail, who had scored an amazing 50 hit a Venkatesh Prasad movement for a 4 and featured the region with the bat, like to state ‘go, get that’. In the following ball Venkatesh bowled him out and flagged him to stroll off the field; with some embellishing words, obviously.
3. Mohammad Kaif taking England for the ride of their lives after being called a ‘bus driver’ in the Natwest Final.
There have been numerous paramount ODI triumphs for India yet nothing tops the NatWest last of 2002. With the mammoth objective of 326 on the board, adolescents Yuvraj and Kaif met the challenge at hand and took the group to a startling triumph.
But it’s the back stories that make the match so much more special. During the match, English captain Nasser Hussain called Kaif a ‘bus driver’. Years later, Kaif replied, “It was good to take them for a ride!”
4. Sourav Ganguly waving shirt from the Lord’s balcony after Natwest final, 2002.
ThatT Natwest last is recognized as much for Ganguly’s shirt waving go about for what it’s worth for India’ s notable win.
But why did he do it? Because Flintoff did it first in India and Ganguly wasn’t letting that go.
After the match, this is what Ganguly had to say about his charged celebration to Geoffrey Boycott. Boycott: You must mention your experience about taking your jersey off and flying it in the air at the Mecca of Cricket: Lord’s! Ohhh, you naughty boy!
Ganguly: One of your boys also took off his jersey here in Mumbai.
Boycott: Yeah, but Lord’s is the Mecca of Cricket.
Ganguly: Lord’s is your Mecca, and Wankhede is ours!
5. Sachin Tendulkar avenging dismissal by Henry Olonga with a scintillating century in the next match.
Henry Olonga played Cricket for a very long time however it was a specific innings by Sachin Tendulkar that he will be most associated with.
In a dead rubber, he sent Sachin to pavilion for mere 11 runs and couldn’t contain his excitement. Sachin did not say anything at that time but took his revenge two days later in the final of Coca-cola Champions trophy on November 13, 1998 .
He hit almost every delivery by him for a 4 or a 6 and scored a beautiful century in one of his finest innings till date.
6. MS Dhoni destroying Australian bowlers after being deliberately blocked by Michell Johnson.
Dhoni doesn’t lose his quiet frequently however a specific ODI against Australia in 2009 was one of the uncommon exemptions. Having been hit by a couple of bouncers and afterward impeded by Michell Johnson while running between the wickets, the enraged commander pounded the bowlers to all pieces of the ground, a lot to the rapture of his fans.
7. Virender Sehwag telling Shoaib Akthar baap baap hota ha, beta beta hota hai.
During one of the matches in the 2003 World Cup, Shoaib Akhtar over and over continued advising Sehwag to play a snare shot as he tossed bouncers. Disappointed and irate, Sehwag let him know, “Woh tera baap khada hai samne non-striking end pe, uss ko bol woh damage ke dikhaye ga.”
Sachin Tendulkar was at the other end. Shoaib tossed a bouncer to Sachin in the following over and he hit a 6. After this, Sehwag answered with his commonplace loot, “Baap baap hota ha, beta beta hota hai”.
8. Sachin Tendulkar bowling out Moin Khan on the last ball of the day.
India was visiting the neighboring nation and during one of the Test matches, Sachin was given the last finished. Not anticipating much from him, batsman Moin Khan stated, “Aaj toh primary tujhe chakka maroonga” to which Sachin purportedly answered, “Fundamental ise pehle bhi out kar chuka hoon. Aaj bhi yeh principle isko out karunga”.
And he did. He bowled a great googly to bowl Moin out on the last ball of the day.
9. Zaheer Khan guiding India to victory with a 5-wicket haul after the ‘jelly beans’ incident.
During the second Test of the 2007 arrangement against England, batsman on wrinkle Zaheer Khan discovered jam beans on the wrinkle and whined to the umpire about it. Yet, the English players just wouldn’t stop. Resolved to perform better, followed this occurrence with a 5-for in the following innings, assuming a major part in India’s triumph.
10. 16-year-old Sachin Tendulkar’s fitting reply to Abdul Qadir
We should simply say ,it required some investment to acknowledge they shouldn’t meddle with Sachin. As a 16-year-old, when Sachin went to play in Pakistan in 1988, the group held banners saying-‘return home and drink milk’; however unperturbed, he went on with his business.
Seeing Sachin perform well, bowler Abdul Qadir went up to him and stated, “Bachhon ko kyu maar rahe ho? Hume bhi maar ke dikhao.”
And so he did. The over recorded: 6, 0, 4, 6, 6, 6- all of which were hit by Sachin.
