Perhaps, the best wicket-keeper batsman ever, Adam Gilchrist had made his ODI debut during the fifth match of the Titan Cup against South Africa at Faridabad in 1996.

Mark Taylor, the then Australian captain, had won the toss and chose to bat. Gilchrist had replaced Ian Healy in the Australian playing eleven. He came in to bat at No. 7 after the fall of Steve Waugh (40). He stitched a 50-run partnership with Stuart Law (52). Gilchrist eventually was bowled by Allan Donald on 18.

South Africa had to score 216 runs to win the match. They achieved the target in the 48th over with just two wickets in hand. Daryll Cullinan had top-scored with 71* (115) with the help of six fours. Watch the full video:
