6. Matthew Sinclair- Australia Vs New Zealand Melbourne 2004


The Reigning world champions led by the mercurial ponting were taking on a resilient New Zealand outfit at the docklands in Melbourne, the Australian Summer of 2004. It was the first ODI of the series, and the Aussies were batting first and were coasting along at 64/0 in the 9th over, when Jacob Oram bowled a pretty ordinary delivery to which Matthew Hayden pulled it to deep Midwicket (very square) nonchalantly. Matthew Sinclair was in business, he took off from almost 40 meters away and dived, a stunning one handed phenomenon followed, and the crowd rose to its feet in ovation, Sinclair had indeed pulled off a stunner. New Zealand actually went on beat the champs winning the game by 4 wickets.
