West Indian left-hand batsman Alvin Kallicharran hooks Dennis Lillee during the course of a spectacular assault on the Australian pace legend in the 1975 World Cup Group B match at The Oval. It was one of the most predictable matches of the group stages owing to Australia’s destructive pace attack. Kallicharran took 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 1, 4, 6, 4 off consecutive balls from Lillee And went on to score 78. The hammering helped West Indies to a seven-wicket win over Australia with 14 overs to spare. The contest between Kallicharran and Lillee was the highlight of the match.
