Canada v South Africa - Action Replay

Ooh Aah! McGrath! The tall fast bowler nick-named 'the pigeon' was at his very best. Operating with a new and modified run up, McGrath ripped out the heart of the Namibian batting. All sorts of World Cup bowling records fell, and McGrath was left with the record of the best bowling figures of the World Cup history - 7-4-15-7. Wickets fell like ninepins, and the Namibian innings folded in the 14th over with just 45 runs on the board. Andy Bichel picked up the last two wickets to fall. Adam Gilchrist too left his mark on the game - taking six catches.
