Thanks for the query.

Scene 1: February 3, 2002 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. India was leading the one day series at 3 - 2 with 6 runs to win with 2 wickets in hand in the last match. Even a tie would have bagged the series for the home team. But, Flintoff ran out Anil Kumble and then yorked Javagal Srinath in his spell concluding the series at at 3 - 3 tie. Flintoff rejoiced by taking his shirt off and running across the ground.

Scene 2: July 13, 2002 at Lords Stadium. It was the Natwest Series final. Given a target of 326 to win by the England team, India was limping at 146 for 5. But Yuvraj Singh (69) and Mohammad Kaif (87*) added 121 for the 6th wicket and finally Zaheer Khan took the winning runs. Dada removed his shirt to return the favour and send a subtle message to England and Co.

Gentlemen......Do not mess with us !!!
