'Top officials broke protocol to allow FBI to question Downer' in Crossfire Hurricane probe


Within hours of the FBI opening its probe, two agents were sent to London to question Australia's then-high commissioner to the UK.

An interview between Downer and the FBI laid the foundation for special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, according to the New York Times.

Mark Waugh, is SIMPLY THE BEST fieldsman that I have ever seen and I have watched a lot of cricket over the last 50 years!!!!

Awesome,superb and astonishing Mark waugh.👌👍

I remember watching this on the TV. Couldn't sit still and that final 4 had me screaming :)

I'm gonna miss that voice on the mic. Farewell, Bill Lawry.

I was at work and listened to the final ball around a pastry bowl/mixer with a mate and Bevan smacked a four off the last ball!!

Michael Bevan should’ve played more test cricket. He’d be first player picked if he was playing now. Unlucky to be playing when Australia had endless depth in batting talent.

Remember it well, great game, love Michael Bevan, and sadly miss Tony Greg and Ritchie. Fantastic cricket commenters better than the one's we have today.

I watched this as a kid. I remember where i was when i was watching. This is an integral childhood memory. This also one of the reasons i don't love T20 (as their run chases are too volatile.) The suspense here watching this was insane. Gave me chills watching it over. Mr Bevan was a hero forever after.

Only 2nd to Jones and Waugh getting 120 in last 10 and Steve Waugh inside out Ambrose over cover for 6 last ball.. I hope my facts are right with who involved

Some of the most exciting matches I can ever remember are where Bevan snatched victory from the jaws of defeat

I remember actually being at the baseball in Adelaide that very night and heard the last ball in the car on way home

Tried going to this game but when I reached the SCG there were SOLD OUT signs everywhere. Some touts were offering $30 face value tickets for $100. Told them to F OFF.

What a legend! I went to this game.... what a great memory Bevan batting the innings to the end and winning the game from the final ball.

Parth Amodkar...indeed he is one of the finest cricketer..may b #2 best finisher....but bro...MSD is all time #1 finisher

Jeremy Taylor can't get much better than this. Voiced by Tony Greig and Bill Lawry and even Glen McGrath with a starring role

Ashish Phadale..One of my favorite players and the first ever match winner who used to single handle win it..Akele

Michael Bevan is No.1 One day ( Batsman) player in history till today in my opinion, his deep understanding and knowledge of his key position while batting is unbelievable...his innings are ultimate guide for one day cricket middle time batting.

excellent single by Glenn McGrath...can someone sit Bevan down with Glenn Maxwell. A bit of Bevan's composure at time would make Maxy lethal.

Michael bevan was my fav batsmen.Him chasing is almost textbook.Look at his average and you will know this was a player made for t20s....The original Mr cricket...

Probably the best batsman who could build a partnership with the tail enders! Seen him doing that more often then not! What a player!

The best finisher in the game till MS Dhoni started his career. Still, he is the second best finisher in the history now.

So much brilliance, Michael. Bev the ledge, McGrath fumbling the ball into his foot, and those epic sleeves.

Best finisher , I really don’t know how and why he was cast off , because he was in good form and all of a sudden there was team without bevan

A really nice knock.Just amazing.I think the viewers of this match sitting in Sydney stedium are very lucky.......thanks cricket Australia for giving us a chance to see this knock as I born after 4 years of this match.....

I remember listening to this match on the radio, pretty sure they weren't televising it in Sydney. What a classic.

Cain if this doesn’t get you ginned up I don’t know what will! #WouldYouKnowMyNameIfYouSawMeWithMichaelBevan

I remember Bevan stunning performance to finish the match even Paul Reffiel also scoring 33 runs 👍👌🏏
