- ODI match was played in the year 2002
- Director Peter Jackson recorded the voice
Many films have been made about cricket in the country and abroad, whether it is on the life of a player or whether cricket is part of a story. But do you know that once it happened that the noise made by the audience in a live match was used in the very popular Hollywood film Lord Of The Rings. That match took place on this day i.e. 16 February.
February 16, 2002. One day match was being played between New Zealand and England in Wellington. Batting first, New Zealand’s team scored 244 runs and their eight wickets had fallen. England had a very bad situation in this match, as the entire team was all out for just 89 runs.
In that match, Andre Adams took 3 wickets for just 13 runs for New Zealand, while Nathan Astle took 3 wickets for 4 runs. Well, the result of the match was easily revealed.

But this match is not remembered because of this, in the middle of the match i.e. after the first innings is over, suddenly a person comes to the ground with a mic and asks the audience to make noise. This person was Peter Jackson, New Zealand’s famous film director who has made many popular films, series.
This noise made by the audience was used in a fight scene in Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers and its voice was cast from there. Peter Jackson called many dialogues and slogans of War Cry from the audience there, that is, the 25,000 people present in the stadium who had only come to watch the match had now become a part of the film.
