THIS DAY IN HISTORY

1981: Henry Khumalo comes on as a substitute and scores three second-half goals to lead Orlando Pirates to an unlikely 3-2 Champion of Champions final victory over Kaizer Chiefs at Orlando Stadium. A minute after halftime, Peter Mokotedi scored to put Chiefs 2-0 up on aggregate in the second leg of the final. Then came Khumalo’s miraculous feat, with his third goal coming in the 90th minute through a penalty after a handball offence.
1994: The Proteas beat Australia by 26 runs in Port Elizabeth to win the sixth ODI and take a 4-2 lead in the eightmatch series. Jonty Rhodes scored 66 and Andrew Hudson

Batting at six, De Villiers made his runs from 333 balls and his innings lasted eight hours. The three-match series was tied 1-1.
