Ganguly takes off his shirt
Flintoff takes off his shirt in a one-day series after winning the match took place in Mumbai during 2002. By this win England vs. India series ended up with 3-3. That moment and Flintoff’s activity disturbed Indian captain Sourav Ganguly a lot. He reacted to that moment by kicking off a water bottle.

Here comes the revenge during the Natwest Finals, at Lord’s off the same year. India won the Natwest series in finals against England and been a unbeaten team in ODI series of 2002.
