1. Miandad vs More
It was during the 1992 World Cup game in Sydney Cricket Ground where India beat Pakistan by 43 runs. During Pakistan innings, Javed Miandad was involved in a war of words with Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More.
Miandad backed away when Tendulkar was about to bowl and complained to the umpire but to no avail. The last ball of the over was pushed to covers but Miandad had to rush back into his crease.
Then the Pakistan batsman jumped in the air with his bat in a hyperactive mode to mock the Indian wicketkeeper where that still of jumping Miandad became so famous after the incident.
