Can someone help me please? I've been wracking my brains, but I can't for the life of me remember the game, what year or even who was playing when Viv Richards performed the most sportsmanlike act I have ever seen in international sport. I am talking about when, in a ODI series held in Australia, Viv was bowling and there was a mix up somehow when the batsman was out of crease and Viv had right to clip stumps and run him out. Instead, he waved the batsman back with no move toward the stumps, which the batsman took for a jest but Viv continued the few paces back to begin his spin bowling run up instead.
I can't for the life of me remember which team the West Indies were playing, something tells me it was Australia. And I can only remember that it was in the last couple of seasons of Viv Richards' international career.
If anyone remembers this, please let me know because my stepson just won't believe me lol and I would love to know what to look up just to see it again.
