#5 4 for 22 vs West Indies - ODI
West Indies needed to win the pool game against Sri lanka in World Cup 2003 to reach the super six. Their bowlers did well to restrict Sri Lanka for a modest total of 228. But when West Indies came out to bat, Vaas broke the back of their batting order by getting Wavell Hinds and Lara very early in the innings.
Then he took Gayle as well who managed to a score half century and in the same over he picked up Ridley Jacobs to almost end the West indian hopes. But this game is also remebered for the brave heroics of Sarwan; he was taken out of the ground on strecher after being hit by a bouncer and was later rushed to a hospital. But Sarwan returned to the crease to almost script a fairy tale win for the West Indies but ultimately fell short by 6 runs.
