Namibian Rudolph van Vuuren has described hitting a boundary off Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram as the highlight of his career.
Wasim took a total of five wickets in the game
Van Vuuren, who has now represented his country at both the rugby union and cricket World Cups, scored 14 runs as his side lost by 171 runs.
But the 30-year-old was beaming despite the margin of defeat.
He said: "It's an honour to play in both the World Cups, but hitting a boundary off one of my idols is a moment I will always cherish.
"I will tell my children that I hit a boundary off the great bowler and they will also enjoy it."
Van Vuuren, a doctor by profession who treats AIDS patients, revealed why his Akram boundary had been all the more important.
The Namibian, who had his bat signed by Wasim after the game, added: "I first saw Wasim at the 1992 World Cup taking two magic wickets in the final.
"And since then I have idolised him."
