Australia headed into the inaugural 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa as one of the favourites, but their campaign was dealt an early blow when minnows Zimbabwe stunned them at Newlands.
Ricky Ponting led a star-studded Australia team into the new venture of T20 cricket, boasting some big names for the first game against Zimbabwe in Cape Town.
Adam Gilchrist, Matthew Hayden, Ponting, Michael Hussey, Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson were just some of the big guns who a few months earlier had won the 50-overs World Cup with Australia in the West Indies.
Ponting won the toss and elected to bat first with Australia posting 138-9 in their 20 overs, a respectable total in T20 cricket at that stage and with a lethal bowling attack, Zimbabwe had to be at their best in their run chase.
But, opening batsman Brendon Taylor was wielding the willow masterfully through the Zimbabwe innings, to pull off one of the biggest upsets in cricket by claiming a five-wicket victory.
It came down to the final over with Nathan Bracken responsible for seeing the Australians home but with four required off two deliveries, the left-hander bowled one down leg-side, which Taylor calmly nudged on to the boundary.
