M.E. Waugh 104 v ZimbabweBack to boards

Mark Waugh made the Lord’s Limited-Overs honours boards when he hit 104 versus Zimbabwe in 1999 Cricket World Cup.

Zimbabwe won the toss and put Australia into bat in this encounter.  After losing his opening partner Adam Gilchrist early in the innings, Waugh stitched up an important partnership with Ricky Ponting to steady the ship before getting together with his brother Steve Waugh also the skipper of the Australian team to help them get to a total of 303-4 at the end of 50 overs.

Mark Waugh as always got himself to a stylish 104 of 120 balls with a tally of 13 fours before losing his wicket to Neil Johnson.

Despite Johnson’s 132 not out in the second innings for Zimbabwe, Australia won the match comfortably by 44 runs.
