Best of Cricket History - Sunil Gavaskar 36* off 174 Balls in World Cup

The beginning of the first World Cup and an infamous go-slow from Sunil Gavaskar.

Having decided that India had no chance of victory after Dennis Amiss smacked England to 334 for 4, Gavaskar booked in for an extended net.

 In 60 overs he crawled to 36 not out off 174 balls, to the chagrin of his coach, his captain and one spectator, who was moved to march out and drop his lunch on the pitch.

England won by 202 runs after India closed on 132 for 3 it was the biggest one-day victory until 1984-85.

"It was the most disgraceful and selfish performance I have ever seen… his excuse [to me] was, the wicket was too slow to play shots but that was a stupid thing to say after England had scored 334," GS Ramchand, India's Manager Said.
