Who can forget that golden moment when Zoe Goss dismissed Brian Lara?
Goss was part of the Bradman XI side playing in the Bradman Foundation charity match in 1994. She bowled two for 60 off ten overs, including the wicket of Lara, one of the greatest batters in the history of the game. She had him all ends up with this swinging ball, leaving him both caught behind and stumped (the caught behind was the official reason, as it happened first).
A decade later, Goss said:
“I think it actually did quite a lot for women’s sport. It was at a time when the basketballers and hockey players were doing really well and Cathy Freeman was just starting to kick arse. The game has come along in leaps and bounds since then.”
Perth-born Goss played for Australia for 13 years as a medium-fast bowler and all-rounder. Her highest international innings was 96, against New Zealand in 1988, and she has played in four World Cups.
Here is what Lara would have seen just before his dismissal:
