    • 15 were required from the final over. Hadlee hit the first ball for 4, was lbw to the second. Smith took twos off ball 3 and 4, and was bowled by the 5th. McKechnie came to the wicket with 7 required, and Greg Chappell instructed his brother Trevor to bowl the final ball underarm, rolling along the ground.
