Cricket is a game of ifs and buts with the ability to turn games in the split of a second. There are some moments in the game where fans don’t let their hopes down because of the presence of a ‘fighter’ at the crease. But despite giving their all in the game, some players aren’t able to take their teams over the line breaking hearts of many fans. There’ve been many instances when big stars failed on a grand stage in cricket. What if they had fired that day and taken their team over the line? Here’s a list of top five knocks that would’ve changed history in World tournaments of cricket:
MS Dhoni’s hundred in 2019 WC Semi-final
MS Dhoni walked in to bat at the score of 71/5 chasing a total of 240 for victory at the grand stage of the semi-final in the 2019 ODI World Cup. Batting in the game that was just three days after his birthday, fans would’ve got the perfect treat from the world cup winning captain had he scored a hundred that day.
The knock would’ve helped India reach one step closer to winning their third world cup and the ‘captain cool’ would’ve got a perfect farewell to his international career. Fans would’ve gone bananas seeing their favourite finisher at work all over again in the final days of his career.
