Players talk about the best cricket performance they watched in the 2010s
84 not out v South Africa, semi-final, World Cup, Auckland, 2015
When Grant Elliott hit the six off Dale Steyn to win the semi-final at Eden Park in the 2015 World Cup, that's probably the most memorable performance I remember vividly. To hit a six off the second to last ball to take New Zealand to the final in a home World Cup was something that has stuck in my brain.
I had managed to get tickets to that game - myself and my two brothers were there. There was a rain delay and I remember thinking we might go home because it was a heavy rain.
Then I remember the whole crowd being on the edge of their seats; the game was just so close. The moment he hit that ball, everyone started jumping up and down.
I don't think I slept that night; it was just the adrenaline that had got the whole nation so excited, knowing we're going to be in the final. It excites me that now, as a female cricketer, we can have this opportunity too, in the 2021 home Women's World Cup, with live television showing the game all across the world, and [a chance to] hit that ball at the right time to get into the final. Potentially someone from the White Ferns has the opportunity to be as inspirational as Grant Elliott was.
