On this day, back in 2003 World Cup semi-final encounter against Kenya at Durban, Indian captain Sourav Ganguly steered the team’s innings with his brilliant century. Batting first, Ganguly came to bat when India lost opener Virender Sehwag at 74 in the 19th over. From there on, Ganguly had a 103-run stand with Sachin Tendulkar, followed by remaining unbeaten at 111 off 114, including 5 fours and 5 sixes. His ton helped India post 270-4 and won the match by 91 runs and India were through to the finals of the tournament for the second time in the history of World Cup. With this hundred, Ganguly became 1st Indian to score a century in a World Cup knockout match and his last such knock in a tournament. This was also his 5th ODI century in a knockout match of a tournament: 2nd most by an Indian batsman after Tendulkar (7). Moreover, overall Ganguly was the 9th batsman to score a World Cup hundred in a knock out match and Rohit Sharma is the only other Indian to have achieved similar feat during 2015 World Cup clash against Bangladesh.
