Jonty Rhodes

So how big was this run out?

With both teams having played 4 matches (South Africa 2 from 4, Pakistan 1 from 4 (1 No result)), the World Cup was at an important stage for both teams.

South Africa had made 7/211 off their 50 overs. The match was evenly poised when rain came., with Pakistan 2/74 in the 22nd over.. 14 overs were lost but only 18 runs were reduced off their target, meaning they needed 194 off the revised 36 overs.

With Pakistan set to launch at 2/135 Rhodes would produce this match turning run out, dismissing the dangerous Inzamam-ul-Haq for 48 off only 44 balls.

The run out would prevent a Pakistan charge, as they went from 2/135 to eventually making it to 8/173 off their 36 allotted overs. 

South Africa won the match by 20 runs.
