World Cup Timeline

Supercat turns it on

When Clive Lloyd took the biggest stage by storm, in the title match of the first tournament

Facing Dennis Lillee, Jeff Thomson and Gary Gilmour in the first World Cup final, at Lord's, West Indies were in some trouble at 50 for 3 when Clive Lloyd walked in. Then, in Ian Chappell's words, "he batted us from one side of Lord's to the other". His 85-ball 102 took West Indies to 291 and they won the World Cup by 17 runs. Chappell, Lloyd, Gordon Greenidge and Mark Nicholas look back at that glorious summer's day at Lord's.
