12 March 2006 … The best game ever. Ricky Ponting made 164 from 105 balls as Australia made 434 for 4 – the first 400-plus total in the history of the game. And yet they lost by one wicket with one ball to spare, after Herschelle Gibbs led the charge with 175 from 111 balls. In all, 87 fours and 26 sixes were struck on the day – both records. Australia’s Mick Lewis returned figures of 10-0-113-0, the worst in ODI history. Watch highlights of Gibbs’ incredible innings.
