Australia defeated India by 1 run in the first match of Group A (1987 World Cup)
After Geoff Marsh and David Boon added 110 for the opening wicket, Marsh would go on to make a century for the Australians. His innings of 110 would help Australia to a score of 6/270.
With India's top order all contributing, the match came down to the wire. Bob Simpson, Australia's coach, had put a lot of work into Australia's fielding, and two direct hits from Dean Jones and Allan Border would be pivotal.
With India requiring 2 runs off 2 balls with 1 wicket in hand, Allan Border would put his trust in a 22 year old Steve Waugh to bowl the final over, and he would produce the goods.
