Chappel's underarm delivery

This should go down in history as the lowest point in his cricketing career. Australian captain Greg Chappel instructed his brother Trevor to bowl an underarm delivery against New Zealand in the Benson and Hedges ODI finals, thus ensuring the Australian team would win the match and avoid a tie. This happened on Feb 01, 1981. Aus 235/4, NZ needed 6 runs of the last ball.
