2. PAK vs AUS (Lords, 2001)
The Australian team won the 2001 Natwest Final in Lords against Pakistan but the presentation ceremony was cut short after an ugly incident. A full beer can was thrown at the Aussies (perhaps by a Pakistani fan). That can hit Michael Bevan’s face hard. Skipper Steve Waugh soon got his team off the place.
In the post-match interview Michael Bevan said: “It”s very sad, but maybe, in a way, you can turn it into a positive. Maybe we”ve reached the lowest point with the spectators, and something will be done and it will be recognized that there are problems, and precautions have got to be taken.”
