At the end of our 1999 World Cup series last year, we promised a season finale that would go revisit one game, with a series of voices from those who were there that day. And here it is. After a lot of work behind the scenes, we’re proud to bring to you this special episode about an afternoon that truly had it all – the oral history of the unforgettable semi-final between Australia and South Africa.

In addition to the radio and television commentary, you will hear from interviews we have conducted with:

· Adam Gilchrist, Australian master blaster wicketkeeper

· Tim Lane, commentating the finish for Test Match Special

· Tom Moody, Australia’s veteran all-rounder

· Steve Elworthy, South Africa’s opening bowler

· Simon Mann, who called the finish for BBC TV

· Lance Klusener, the mighty South African all-rounder

· Damien Fleming, the man who sent down the unforgettable 50th over.

A special thank you to Dave Collins for piecing that all together in editing – a mighty task, beautifully done.

The Greatest Season That Was is produced by Jay Mueller and is part of the Bad Producer Podcast Network.
