Background[ edit ] For some years, there had been an intense rivalry between Australia and South Africa in One-Day Internationals, dating from the semi-final of the Cricket World Cup , where South Africa could only tie against Australia in a match they needed to win to progress to the final. Some followers of cricket considered that to be the greatest game of all time. They also lost the three Test series 2—0. It was also of constant irritation to the South Africans that the Australians were referring to them as “chokers”.
This match was the final match of a five-match series in South Africa. South Africa won the first two matches comfortably, but Australia fought back to win the next two, making this the deciding match. Australia had to play the series without their best one-day bowler, Glenn McGrath , whose wife was suffering from cancer. The South African team also missed their best one-day bowler, Shaun Pollock , in the final match due to a back strain.
